The Chronicle of Higher Education has offered college towns across the U.S. the chance to get some (positive) publicity. If you want the reporter, Lawrence Biemiller, to come to Normal, you need to send him an email with a list of people to interview -- people around here who make the colleges "unique, engaging, smart, fun." Also, you can suggest places to visit and places to eat (that should be easy).
How about it? Should he come to Normal? Who would you put on the list of people to be interviewed? He starts his travels November 1, so send in those emails! That address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
