Editor's Note
I am still looking for a few good graduate students who might be interested in writing for StudentAffairs On-line. Faculty members and Student Affairs professionals encourage your graduate students to write up their experiences with technology in academe. Prospective authors should review past issues of the Journal to get an idea of content and style. I will be happy to work with beginning authors who desire to publish. Contact me by email.
