The Manship School will be in San Antonio Thursday and Friday of this week at the Journalism Education Association/National High School Journalism Convention.
Manship will be implementing a wireless internet access laptop requirement for all students beginning in the fall of 2013. If you are declaring a Major or Minor in Mass Communication or Minor in Visual Communication or Political Communication you will be required to have your own wireless Internet access laptop computer upon entering the first Mass Communication class.
This is a key part in Manship’s efforts to keep up with the ever changing digital world of mass media. Digital content is becoming a large part of our curriculum due to the practical experiences we wish to offer our students inside and outside of the classroom.
For further information on the new requirement and Manship’s Digital Media Initiative, please visit our website.
Kick-off LSU is back on this week - Hope to see two groups of prospective students this Friday! Please contact LSU Admissions if you want to attend in future weeks.
Manship’s Student Media did a fantastic job covering Hurricane Isaac - See the coverage at lsureveille. com
Looking forward to meeting 25 prospective students and their parents tomorrow! If you are not coming, contact LSU admissions so you can plan to attend a session later this semester.
Greeting from LSU Basketball!
We hope your school year is to a super start. Our players started classes on Monday and started lifting weights this morning at 6am.
Academics have priority in the LSU program. This afternoon we will meet as a team to discuss the upcoming season along with our expectations for what they on and off the floor.
Here our young men have everything they need to be successful in the classroom and on the floor. Tutoring is available for those players that would like extra help. We have monitored study halls, and each assistant coach will be assigned a certain number of players to watch over academically. This is, in addition to having a full time, academic advisor.
Items are in place to be a successful on the court as well. We have a full-time trainer, full-time strength and conditioning coach. In addition, players have 24 hour access to the practice facility.
We expect extraordinary things out of the players on our team because of what they have provided to help them be successful. My question for you is, “What do you expect from yourself?”
You do not have to have a full time tutor for your classwork or a full time coach to watch your every move. You still have the chance to succeed with whatever is available to you on a daily basis.
Control the things that are of upmost importance. That is your attitude and your effort. Starting today treat it as if you had everything you need to be successful. If you have a book, you can study. If you have a basketball, you can improve your game. Don’t wait until you have what you think you need. Work with what you have in place at this time.
Each minute invested in hard work and effort pays off down the road. I don’t know how it will pay off, but it will pay off.
Decide to have an unbelievable work ethic. Once you begin to have this approach of good effort things will change. You then put yourself in a position to reach your goals. You cannot reach those goals without an intense desire to have excellence.
All the best and Geaux Tigers,
Coach Tom Kelsey
