A bunch of happy Cappers

Most semesters, I lead a section of Marist College’s communication major capstone course (which Marist calls “Capping”). This semester, as I have done previously, I have asked the students to run blogs and Twitter accounts to document their progress as the semester goes on.

Students are working either individually or in small groups to develop a semester-long project that brings together all of the knowledge, practical skills, and critical thinking that they have accumulated in their three-plus years in the program. They run the full gamut of concentrations available in the major (journalism; sports communication; public relations; advertising; communication studies…) and I think that there are some very promising projects this semester.

Check them out below and follow their progress. Tell them what’s working and what’s not. Part of the reason I wanted them to be using social media was to get used to working in the public sphere. You can also follow our conversation on Twitter. We settled on the hashtag #hapcap (it’s supposed to be short for “happy capping” or “happy cappers”).
