My name is Melanie Schaefer and I am a senior at UW-Whitewater. I have created this blog for my capstone journalism class. I am particularly excited about this because as a future athletic administrator, most of my content will be online. Whether it’s social media, a press release or a game recap, the web is the most common place where my work will be seen. I am hoping to integrate my online skills into the class and possibly even my capstone project. I currently work in the UW-Whitewater athletic department where I hold a variety of responsibilities. including editing athletes’ head shots, writing their biographies and adding pictures to their personal pages. My work can be seen on the UW-Whitewater athletics page. I have also included links to the most common websites I use during my job. Most are for updating our football game programs, which I do on a weekly basis.
This blog will contain a variety of other assignments such as print articles and anything else that I find of interest. I hope that you enjoy my blog!
