John Dillon ‘12
Jeff Smith ’91 – Lance Advisor
In Texas, bigger is better. You might say that was the mindset for this year’s Campus Ministry. Mr. Conry, leader of Campus Ministry, has changed the way things are done this year. Instead of having a core team of seven to nine guys, he chose 19 for the year. Going into it – Mr. Conry tells the Lance, he wasn't sure how well things were going to go.
This week marked the kickoff event: Beginnings and Barbecue. Those who were there tell the Lance it was a huge success. The event included a prayer service at the school and then everyone poured into a City Q for some barbecue.
Much to the liking of the participants, a section of the Campus Ministry Core Team put on the prayer service. They wanted the member to focus on growing in some aspect lives throughout the upcoming year.
Campus Ministry members say the turnout was one of the highest seen in recent years.
Mr. Conry says he is very happy with the first event and excited for the rest of the year.

This class, much like the world of Journalism, is fluid. We will make adjustments to our schedule as it warrants. However, in the world of print and broadcast journalism, there is nothing more important than meeting a DEADLINE. You will be, as a member of this class, expected to meet all hard deadlines without exception. There will be no warnings. Missing a deadline will result in the loss of a full letter grade. Late assignments will be reduced by one full letter grade for each day late. This is not meant to be a statement that induces fear – rather, it is to bring about an understanding of the contract about which you are to enter.
We will take advantage of numerous media outlets in order to engage our readers/viewers (print/broadcast/social media outlets).
You might be a son outside the halls of SFS; you might be an artist or an athlete when the school day is done; however, when you are in this class and when you are completing our assignments – you are a JOURNALIST, and I expect you to act like it.
Staying on top of the news is an integral part of this course. I expect you to be engaged in these stories both print and broadcast, both local and national – it will serve as a basis for our discussion each and every week.
CYA (Cover Your A**) is a principle that will serve you well this year. When in doubt, ATTRIBUTE. I repeat, when in doubt, ATTRIBUTE. If you didn’t say it, don’t write down that you did. Allow quotation marks to be your friend.
But remember, plagiarism is a serious offense that will jeopardize your academic career, and it will not be tolerated.
In this class – for the 50 minutes I have your attention – Please don’t IM, Gchat, text, tweet, ping, friend or update your Facebook page. I plan on treating you like adults. Please do not make me ask why your keyboard is clicking when either I or a guest speaker is talking. The first time, you lose points. The second time, I’ll ask you to visit the Dean of Students.
If you haven’t done so already, please purchase a flash drive so that you can transfer your work from computer to computer.
