Today in Alumni News, we would like to congratulate John Moss (MAW ’08), who has just gotten a story published in Newcity Magazine. John’s story, titled “Smashing the Resistance: Billy Corgan is Back in a Whole New Arena,” has its roots in a piece he wrote for the Personal Essay course while at DePaul.

You can read John’s story online at newcity.com/2012/05/10/smashing-the-resistance-billy-corgan-is-back-in-a-whole-new-arena.
