Kathryn Jenson-White or as most her students call her, KJW, is an associate professor at The University of Oklahoma for the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication. She is also a freelance writer in her free time. She stays very busy with both of these professions, and is very fond of both fields.

Elanie Steyn, an assistant professor at the same college, feels as though KJW is a wonderful individual.

"Kathryn deserves every single good thing that comes her way," Steyn said. "She is one of the most hard-working people I have ever met."

KJW has become rather popular among certain students as well, as her personality is more striking that any professor you might find. She's taught for 30 years, and is currently in the decision process considering whether or not she should retire, but either way she wants to continue working with journalism.

Not So Slim Pickins

Everyone likes chicken, right? Well now that that's been established, but where should you get your chicken in Norman?

There's no shortage of options, you've got Raising Cane's and Chicken Express and then the nationwide chains like Popeye's, KFC and Church's. One you may not have heard of though is Slim Chicken's, which is located at 2627 S. Classen Blvd.

While most people in Norman may suggest Cane's, their selection is minuscule and their chicken is far from delicious. Really their only gem is the Cane's sauce. Slim Chickens, however, has a great selection including wraps, tenders, wings, salads and sandwiches. Their chicken is also much better tasting.

"I like Cane's, but since I've tried Slim Chickens I don't really eat there much anymore," OU student Sterling Dycus said. "I think the chicken and fries are much better here."

Another great thing about Slim Chickens is the price, as you can get a large meal for about 5 or 6 dollars.

"It's cheaper too, which is good for us broke college kids," Dycus said.

On Tuesdays Slim Chickens offers half off for OU students, as long as you present your student ID.

"I mean you can come here on a Tuesday and eat for almost nothing," Dycus said. "It's really convenient. That's normally when I end up coming, it's kind of become a weekly thing for me."

So next time you're feeling chicken, you should check out Slim Chickens, especially if it's a Tuesday.
