10th annual state Journalism Day Thursday
More than 1,400 aspiring journalists will be on campus Thursday for State Journalism Day at CSU, an all-day event at the Lory Student Center that connects high school journalists with journalism professionals.
â€œThe best thing for students, in my opinion, is that they get to see that thereâ€™s still a lot of opportunity in the fields of journalism and professional communication,â€ said Greg Luft, chairman of CSUâ€™s Department of Journalism and Technical Communications.
Journalism Day participants will also have the opportunity to tour various on-campus facilities, including the Collegian office, CTV and KCSU.
