From soldier to student newspaper columnist

Georgetown University student and Iraq veteran William Quinn had an interesting essay in The Washington Post yesterday about his transition from soldier to student.

"I find it frustrating that Facebook is a bigger part of most students' lives than the war," he writes.

Quinn, a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service, also writes a column called Aimless Feet every other Tuesday for The Hoya, the student newspaper at Georgetown. It's a great example of the kind of provocative, insightful commentary student newspapers can get by tapping non-traditional students.
