My name is Grant Evans, and I am a journalism student at the University of Northern Colorado. Last spring this blog was coving the UNC Baseball team during their 2012 season for an advanced news writing class. Now this blog has changed its course to cover the UNC Student Senate for an independent study course through the journalism department at UNC. This blog will be not only covering the Student Senate, but also covering controversial topics that arise within the senate.
I have been blogging for almost two years and I am confident in the skills I have learned over the years about blogging. This will be my first experience covering senate, and in the past I have only covered sports. I am a little nervous about the formality of government and the issues the senate will be addressing this spring.
This blog is very similar to my previous class blogs and I hope I can further my skills as a blogger. I am looking forward to the challenges that covering Student Senate and I think it will be something that I come to enjoy throughout the semester.
