With Snapchat in the news for turning down a $3 billion offer from Facebook, this is a good time to reblog this photo of a selfie by photojournalism student Michele Thorkelsen. Via micheletphotography:

UMass sophomore Maria Rinaldi takes a study break outside the library to Snap Chat with her friends. “I try my best to not look at my phone while I’m studying, but it always seems to find a way to distract me from my work,” said Rinaldi.

With James “Whitey” Bulger sentenced to two life terms by a court today, the timing of our latest alumni spotlight on Kevin Cullen, class of ‘81, is perfect. The Globe columnist co-authored a book on the notorious South Boston gangster. “I have a contrary view on a lot of things,” Cullen told junior Aviva Luttrell. “I’m not as intrigued with talking to the richest guy or the smartest guy or the most famous person. I’m much more interested in ordinary people. If Heidi Klum came in tomorrow and somebody said they’d give me an exclusive interview with her, I’d say ‘no thanks.’”
