Associated Collegiate Press’s 26th Annual National College Summer Jounalism Workshops


2:20: I just got done shoot­ing a video. Will try to get that bad boy up on YouTube soon. My part­ner was Jack­ie Cain of the Echo at St. Michael’s Col­lege in Ver­mont.

Ear­li­er I had Burg­er King: dou­ble cheese­burg­er and a straw­ber­ry shake. De­li­cious as al­ways. Nice walk down Wash­ing­ton Avenue.

10:20: Af­ter a de­li­cious piz­za and wings din­ner last night, An­drea, Ben and I all head­ed out sep­a­rate ways and I am now back at the U of M.

Sit­ting in with Ron John­son again. This time: 10 de­sign tips.



Back with Ron John­son of In­di­ana Uni­ver­si­ty. This time the work­shop is on Fun­da­men­tal News De­sign. Same room (Mur­phy 228) as with Joel Eisfelder.

Hope­ful­ly I’ll learn some good stuff to ap­ply to City Col­lege News.

I got here not that long ago and have reg­is­tered. The Keynote speak­er starts in 15 min­utes. The speak­er is Min­nPost’s David Brauer. Will keep you read­ers up­dat­ed as times goes by. Hope­ful­ly I’ll be learn­ing about quite a few things here: Ad­ver­tis­ing, Layout/Graphic De­sign and some “cut­ting edge” audio/video techniques.
