NaNoWriMo Kick OffThis year, 47 House and the Library will host a virtual kick-off of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) on Thursday, October 29 at 7 p.m. Facilitated by BizComm professor and author Stephanie Verni, the event will begin with a quick activity and then move into tips to get you started writing your novel, collection of poetry, travelogue, family history, or memoir. NaNoWriMo is a national endeavor that prompts writers who have ideas but do nothing with them to set a goal of writing 50,000 words during the month of November (which constitutes a short novel or novella), or putting their best foot forward on other writing projects. Writers who are on social media post their daily word counts, words of inspiration, and tips for writing throughout the month of November. As well, many famous novels were written during NaNoWriMo, including "Water for Elephants," "The Night Circus," and "Fangirl." The SU Library will also be posting information about NaNoWriMo, so stay tuned! Be sure to use the BlueJeans link to join, and don't forget to use the hashtag #NaNoWriMo to share your progress. All are welcome!

Ryan Kenny HockeyBizComm sophomore Ryan Kenny is the "stang in the spotlight" in athletics this week. Ryan, who hails from Sparta, New Jersey, plays men's hockey at Stevenson and aspires to play professionally in the future. According to Ryan, "Playing for Stevenson is extremely special. I love throwing on the Mustang jersey every Friday and Saturday night and going to war with my teammates. Each moment I'm on the ice it's always the best time for me." So far, Ryan's favorite moments at Stevenson include getting to the rink early for practice, beating St. Norbert and playing at Utica College, and taking a course in marketing. Congratulations on being the spotlight player, and we look forward to seeing you on the ice, Ryan!
