Many students are forced to work summer jobs instead of enjoying the summer in order to earn money.
While being a student, individuals find all sorts of odd jobs to earn money. For Michigan State University journalism major Devinnia Moore, her way to earn money was to “Beat Faces” as she calls it.

Q: What would you say is the main reason you started D.Mua?

Sunny in November is perfect for golfers and golf course business. Extended warm weather has made it possible for the golf season to be extended. Some golfers may say it’s just the work of golf gods.

The Williamston City Council has approved the hiring of a full-time Department of Public Works employee. Approval was needed because the new employee will start before the old employee retires.
