Ferris State University Students Show Innovation, Motivation

BIG RAPIDS - Ferris State University takes a lot of pride in innovation and meeting the needs of a fast-changing world.

In that regard, Poynter Online writer Joe Grimm has a column on two Ferris State University students building on that theme of innovation.

Two young entrepreneurs have launched an online community where college journalists are sharing ideas on technology, leadership, news judgment and content.

Here is an excerpt:

Kelsey A. Schnell and Brandon Martinez built CollegeNewsroom.org in Big Rapids, Mich., the home of Ferris State University.

I met Schnell and Martinez at the Michigan Press Association's winter conference on Saturday, where they were handing out business cards to try to get other college students to join the community. They said they are focusing on attracting people, not publications, because they are looking for personal involvement. So far, students from about 30 colleges have joined.
