Interview Questions

We received 13 applications for induction into our chapter of SCJ. Interviews will be held Jan. 29 at 12:30 p.m. in the Senate Chambers in Witherspoon Student Center.

So applicants can prepare, the interview questions are

as follows:

  1. Why do you want to be a member of SCJ?
  2. What do you hope to contribute/accomplish as a

    member of SCJ?

  3. Sunshine Week is a national initiative to open a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. This year it will take place March 14 to 20, 2010, which is our Spring Break, so we will celebrate it the week following, March 22 to 26, 2010. Suggest one or more ideas for how our chapter of SCJ can celebrate Sunshine Week 2010 and raise awareness about open government in your media, on campus or in the community.

Applicants who can not attend the interviews must submit their questions via e-mail to President Susannah Brinkley by 9 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 29.

Happy Constitution Day!

The members of SCJ decided to celebrate the birthday of the Constitution and spread the word about Constitution Day by spray-painting the Free Expression Tunnel the night before. We met at 10 p.m. at the tunnel. Meredith and Helen brought painting materials, and Luis brought the stencils he laser cut in chip board. Helen and Susannah had spent a few hours earlier in the week designing our mural and creating the stencils in Illustrator.

This was our first bonding experience of the year, and everyone seemed to have a really great time. Tim, one of the new members, really stepped up — and helped us with our math, as Helen and Susannah felt it was important to

keep the flag proportional to the real thing. Everyone participated in the painting, taking turns to make it look really cool and unique. We had several passersby tell us how awesome they thought our design was, so we knew we’d done a good job when

we were through.

We discussed doing another Free Expression Tunnel mural for other events in the future, like Free Speech Week and Sunshine Week, because everyone had such a good time, and we were still spreading the word about Constitution Day to the campus. Plus, it only took us two hours to paint the entire thing.

Thanks to everyone who helped out! And more photos to be uploaded eventually!
