The River Reporter staff was busy this week trying to finish their stories before going home for Easter Break. The staff started off by covering the mischievous computer virus, the Conflicker worm. This issue then branched into talking about the big sporting event of the weekend the Men’s NCAA Championship game. The issue included an article previewing the event and one giving a post game of the championship. Along with these stories the issue included a press release detailing Marist’s new MBA certificate program. The River reporter also touched on the economy, featuring a story about the increase in shoplifting and another relating the Ellen DeGeneres show to Marist Students reaching out to the community.

This week the River Reporters broadened their horizon and profiled many of the influential and intriguing figures around campus. One such figure is Cassandra Gilday, who became the first female ROTC cadet at Marist.
