Student quote:

When people pick up a newspaper, they really don’t know what goes into making it. Being able to be a small part of what goes on behind the scenes has really been an amazing experience. Coming in every morning and working on my assignments, I feel that this is exactly what I want to do. Without a doubt, this internship has only backed up my decision to pursue a degree in journalism.

Supervisor’s input

What do you think about the internship program?

It’s a great opportunity for high school students to get a look at a real workplace. It’s a practicalexperience they just can’t get in a classroom.

Why were you willing to participate?

We value the opportunity to allow prospective journalists to get a feel for the atmosphere in a working newsroom! It is a great opportunity for the student and for us.
