New Media Group and Criticism at SJSU

Kyle Hansen put up a good post tonight after JMC163 ended. He made a great point about recent criticisms of the school that I think is worth repeating.

Some people are concerned that our writing about the need for change at SJSU reflects poorly on the school. I disagree. I think that San Jose State is a fantastic school. The fact that students and staff are able to voice their concerns and make suggestions is proof of the quality. We all learn from each other. The point of attending a university is to broaden your horizons, see things from different perspectives and learn that it is okay to be wrong and change your mind some times. The best way for a good school to get better is to listen to the people that are around: students, faculty, alumni and community members. I am proud to go to SJSU and hope that I can help make the school better for those who will come here in the future.
True dat`.

He's also talking about starting a New Media club/group on campus. That's a great idea. Anyone interested in it should hit up Kyle or me at JMC163 or email us. You can also leave a comment on either of these posts with your email address. Maybe we can start a discussion about the proposed group, topics to cover, and all that other good stuff.
