Professor Roginson is a member of the eLearning Guild. She helps advise undergraduate (sports media) and graduate students (online and sports media) across the college in association with Drs. Chambers and Callison, respectively. She also has several participation awards from being a student-athlete back in the day, but no one cares about that, which is a story she tells in some classes.
