End of Semester Column

CASSIE BROWN April 26, 2021
Writing for “The Antelope” this semester was different for me than it has been the past two semesters in which I had written. I joined the spring semester of my freshman year and have enjoyed writing articles for a little extra spending money. But this time it’s different. This time I have to write because I am a member of the class JMC 350, which also means I don’t get paid for writing this semester. That’s O.K., though, because I still gained experience in my field of interest while checking off one of the boxes on my degree audit.
