Academics vs. Zombies: they're dead; they're all messed up

Credit Centers for Disease Control

Say what you want about the federal government, but they take their zombie apocalypse seriously.

In fact, the CDC (we kid you not) has a whole page of information and links if you suspect they're coming to get you, Barbara.

Not to be outdone, UMD held Academics V. Zombies last night.  How does the undead population figure into Goals 2 and 4 of the University's Strategic Plan?

Should the UMD Police Department be conducting Active Zombie training?  Those questions and more were answered as we took a deep dive into the living-challenged this morning on Northland Morning.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
