Mission to Africa

Incoming Ithacan opinion editor Aaron King and Liz Getman, both rising seniors, are spending the summer interning with CORAfrica (Children of Rural Africa), a U.S.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to providing quality education to children in rural Nigerian villages. Check out their blog about the experience. A journalism major, Aaron is also a boxer — a former Golden Gloves champ at that. Take a look at Anna Ghosin-Szeliga's profile of him — if for no other reason than to check out the photo of him teaching Mead Loop to box.

Bloomroses Across America

For the past three weeks, Mike and Melissa (Thornley) Bloomrose, both ’02, have been traveling across the country seeing the sights. Melissa, who just completed her student teaching semester at Essex Elementary School, has been documenting the trip for her class. Check out her blog about the trip — it's fun stuff.
