Previous Student Feedback

Every semester I ask students to provide feedback for future students of Online Journalism 1. Here are some of their more poignant reflections:

—Be sure to stay on top of your deadlines because they come fast. If you don’t understand something, ask.

—My advice for future students is do not procrastinate in this class, because it can and probably will come back to hurt you in the end. This is a topic that you need to stay one step ahead of all semester to spare yourself the crazy end of semester stress this course will bring you if you don’t stay on top of things.

—This is the future of journalism, so if that’s what you want to do with your life, this is the course to take.

—The only way you can really do poorly in this class is if you just don’t do any work at all. This class is a lot of fun because you get to create your own blog about pretty much whatever you want…It can be a little time-consuming, but you’re at least doing something fun, not like writing papers and taking tests. No tests, just extra credit quizzes. I recommend taking this class if you like to do creative tasks. Also, Professor Diulio is always there to help you out when you get stuck and will give you valuable/honest feedback.

—You have the free will to write about whatever interests you, therefore, you are constantly engaged in the topic and having fun with what you are doing. DiUlio gives incredible feedback that can really shape your work from great to phenomenal.

—Running your own blog provides you with real life work experience.

—Well paced class that is loaded with a majority of the work on the back end so you can hone your skills before the most important project come up. Don’t miss more than 2-3 assignments however you will be screwed!

About Nick DiUlio

My name is Nick DiUlio, a freelance writer and editor from New Jersey. I have been passionate about the craft of writing since I was old enough to spell, and this love has led to a successful career in journalism and creative nonfiction. As a freelancer, I have covered a wide range of topics and personalities, as my published work has focused on everything from profiles of artists and important political figures to hard-news stories with both national and local appeal; from restaurant and beverage reviews to tips on fashion and finance; from health and wellness pieces to celebrity Q&A’s. My work has appeared in several local, regional and national publications—both in print and online—including Philadelphia Magazine, Slate.com, Miller-McCune, New Jersey Monthly, Eating Well, and Delaware Today. Additionally, I am the South Jersey Bureau Chief for New Jersey Monthly and an adjunct journalism professor at Rowan University. To be sure, the broadness of my body of work seems only to be matched by my boundless interest in almost every subject imaginable (except Warren Zevon).
