Today we saw a bike race, and you can see the part just before they started:
The 30th Women’s Little 500 race was won by Kappa Alpha Theta — the time in the middle of the front row here at the start. This was their third victory in the last four years and seventh all-time championship. That’s the most of any team. The women’s race is 25 miles long and was an entertaining way to spend an hour. Also, many of our students were broadcasting or covering the race, so it was fun to see the familiar faces hard at work throughout the facility.
Some of the women that won this race, by the way, came into the studio for our morning show a few weeks ago:
Anyway, after the race, it was back on our usual side of campus, more of our hard working students were producing the series finale of Hella Late with Rob Sherrell our late night host treated his live audience to a rap battle. There were some talented people there. I watched from the audience. This guy won.
Here’s my friend Rob, who hosts that show:
Rob Sherrell is a writer, a comic, a filmmaker. He pitched and co-produced Hella Late. He’s also a standup comedy major. His first professional gig, after school, is directing a documentary in Thailand in just a few weeks.
I asked him, How’d you get that?
“Because of this, because of IUSTV,” he said.
He’s such a cool guy. Smart, thoughtful, funny. He’s got a quiet drive and a prominent, eloquent urgency. He’s one of those, you just know, he’s going somewhere.
He’s about to graduate, so like all of the seniors, you’re ready to hear of the big things in their future.
We say, “Hey, come back and talk about your careers and give the current students hints and tips. And also give us some of your money.” But first, we knew them when.
