Students from the Meredith College Department of Communication attended the MediaFest journalism convention in Washington, D.C. from October 27-30, 2022.
The convention, hosted by the Society of Professional Journalists and the College Media Association, brought together professional journalists, student journalists, and college media advisers from across the country. Students learned about journalism and media trends, new digital tools, emerging technologies, and career opportunities.
“Attending the convention not only allowed me the opportunity of gaining and developing versatile career and life skills but also encouraged me in my personal journey to valiantly embrace the unknown of new experiences,” said Caroline Garland, ’24.
Communication professors Alan Buck and Lynn Owens also attended the event. Owens served on the convention’s critique team for student media submissions.
