We host a Management Seminar for College News Editors every summer, I’ve participated almost every year since 2007 (and have the shirts to prove it). Part of the week is a breaking news exercise, where editors from across the country have to work on a team to cover an event.

This year, we ended up with a fire alarm going off in the building that was not part of the exercise, so the kids grabbed laptops and worked outside for a bit.
