The Big Life of “Tiny”

Corin Adams shoots. The ball sails through the air and swooshes through the basket. “Congratulations to Corin ‘Tiny” Adams for scoring her 2000th point,” the announcer shouts. “She now holds the record for most points on a basketball team, girls or boys, at Morgan State University.”  The crowd cheers.  The Morgan State girl’s team goes on to beat North Carolina A&T. For the Brooklyn native, that was no ordinary Tuesday night–and the game-changing March 2, 2010 moment feels it happened yesterday. Adams now holds the record for highest points scored in Morgan State basketball history for both men’s and women’s basketball teams.  “Basketball […]

The Official Launch of WMUR Radio and The Spokesman

The Official Launch of WMUR Radio and The Spokesman

February 14th was not just Valentine’s Day at MSU. The school’s newest radio station WMUR and student newspaper, The Spokesman, put on a show with a joint launch party in the Student Center canteen. As soft and smooth sounds such as TLC “No Scrubs” played in the background, students browsed The Spokesman website and listened to some of the new student hosts at WMUR. Contests, interviews, giveaways and trivia games drew curious students from their lunches. The atmosphere was lively as Morgan journalists celebrated a new phase in their publication history. “I’m excited about The Spokesman,” said Morgan senior Brian Waters. […]
