Snap of the Week, March 11

Hey Patriots. Before you head out for spring break, we wanted to give you a heads up on a new weekly feature on Connect2Mason, the C2M Snap of the Week. 

The idea's pretty simple:

  • We take a lot of photos here in Student Media, and we don't always get to use all of them with our content. We don't want to let all those just sit on a server (or in the cloud).
  • You all take a lot of photos, too. We see bunches of breaking news TwitPics on Twitter and lots of fun ones on Facebook, and we want to highlight some of the best (with your permission).

Each Friday, members of the staff will review the photos we've seen and taken. If the best comes from our photographers, you'll see that photo. If we see one online, we'll contact you, and let you know we'd like your photo to be featured online as the Snap of the Week (we won't use anything without you giving us the "good-to-go").

We're also taking submissions. If you want to have your photo considered,  you can send it directly to the executive editor at Please include "Snap of the Week submission" in the subject line.

You can also upload a photo to our Facebook wall.

This week's Snap

This week's Snap comes to us from Jake McLernon, a photographer at C2M and the man behind Jolly J Photography. It's a shot of Jonathan Phillips, left, and junior Andrew Heller on the North Plaza.

Phillips is one of 22 seminarians from Mount St. Mary's Seminary who spent a portion of their spring break on the Mason campus this week. The trip was a mission to speak to students and "share the light of Christ." 

The group of seminarians – sort of "priests in training," or men discerning the priesthood – included one Mason alum, Thomas Gallagher. 

They arrived on campus Sunday, and stayed through Wednesday, leading up to Ash Wednesday Mass's with Catholic Campus Ministry. Some members from CCM accompanied the seminarians as they engaged in conversations across campus.
