UI journalism senior, Newsweek intern pens article on flood recovery

Susan Elgin, a senior journalism major at the University of Iowa School of Journalism and Mass Communication in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is interning at Newsweek magazine this summer. In a Newsweek Web exclusive, Elgin interviews Dennis McKinley, a project manager with BMS Catastrophe, a Fort Worth, Texas-based company that is cleaning up the buildings on campus affected by the flood.

Elgin, a Des Moines native who is also obtaining a certificate in entrepreneurship through the Tippie College of Business, is currently based in New York City while she interns with Newsweek. She plans to study abroad in London this fall.
