  1. Hi,

    I am Hung Tran, Editor-in-Chief of The Denisonian, the student newspaper at Denison University.
    This week we are having a swim meet at OWU and I’m wondering if you guys are planning to cover photos for that meet? If yes, we would be very glad to be shared some of them for our paper. Sure thing in the future I’ll be looking forward to more cooperation! 🙂

    1. Hi Hung Tran,

      This is Elizabeth Childers, the Managing Editor for The Transcript. I’m not sure if we have a reporter covering the meet yet: I will check with our sports editor and new editor about it. I think sharing photos is something we are definitely interested in, and even if we are unable to share them for the swim meet, we can definitely keep you in mind when we cover events concerning Denison.

  2. My son was in your Feb. 28, 2013 issue Volume 150 No. 16. Please tell me why that issue is not in your archives section. How can I get an archived copy?
