I’m Colin Donohue, and I’m the director of student media at Elon University in North Carolina. In that role, I work with all six of Elon’s student media organizations in addition to teaching in the School of Communications (Media Writing and Multimedia Journalism). I’m also a proud 2005 alum of Elon, where I majored in journalism. Professionally, I’ve worked for the Burlington Times-News and the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
I love preparing students for the changing media and journalism landscape. The shifts should be anxious, invigorating and fun. I’m particularly fond of this quote from Seth Davis, which I pass along to all my students: “How can you squander even one more day not taking advantage of the greatest shifts of our generation? How dare you settle for less when the world has made it so easy for you to be remarkable?” My hope is that our students find ways to be remarkable.
I’m easy to find and contact on the web. Check me out on:
