Two student leaders of The Pendulum, Elon University’s weekly student newspaper, will attend the College Media Advisers conference March 13-16, 2010, in New York, where they will attend educational workshops and network with media professionals.
Students in attendance will be:
- Anna Johnson, managing editor
- Sam King, news editor
Pendulum adviser Colin Donohue will also be in attendance.
In addition to attending workshops and sessions led by professionals from the media world and faculty members from communications schools nationwide, students will also network, take tours of media organizations around the city and have The Pendulum professionally critiqued.
Students will also submit a single issue of The Pendulum into the Apple Awards competition, which recognizes the best newspapers, radio casts, newscasts, yearbooks and literary magazines from schools in attendance at the CMA convention. The Pendulum will be submitting its Oct. 28, 2009 issue.
Check this blog regularly from March 13-16 for updates from the students on the trip. They will be posting quick summaries/reflections after every session they attend.
