In addition to the excellent photography example shown above, Jolley is expanding his skill set in graphic design, social media and writing (news releases and blog posts).

Newspaper readership high at U of M

The University of Memphis placed 14th in a ranking of the Top 20 programs in USA Today’s Collegiate Readership Program.

According to statistics provided by USA Today, U of M students have been reading an average of almost 1,200 newspapers per day, totaling 141,669 for the latest academic year.

USA Today coordinates all aspects of the program, which places newspapers in displays in residence halls and other campus locations each morning. A recycling program collects unused copies.

The readership program provides students with daily (Monday through Friday) issues of USA Today, The New York Times and The Commercial Appeal.

"I love that our students want to be well informed citizens of the world," said Dr. Rosie Phillips Bingham, U of M vice president of student affairs.

Inventing your dream is the first and biggest step toward making it come true.
