A Tradition of Excellence and Innovation IN JOURNALISM
Established in 1877, the Columbia Daily Spectator currently stands as the second oldest college publication in the US. Built on the values of continual innovation and improvement, we were the first Ivy League publication to go primarily online in 2014, cutting the daily print edition in favor of 24/7 coverage on the web. Here at Spectator, we have continuously pushed the bounds of traditional journalism, using media and technology to better inform our reporting and engage our readers.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
GAIN Experience and Transferable Skills
This conference aims to induct high school students into the world of university journalism and give them an introduction to the key skills and tools needed to run a sophisticated publication. By exploring the inner workings of Spectator, students stand to gain valuable professional experience and transferable skills.
SHARPEN YOUR CAMPUS PUBLICATION
Students will work directly with our experienced editors, picking up tips and tricks to create excellent content and sharpen the quality of their own publications. Participants will leave the conference with a clear understanding of how to succeed as journalists and students, learning skills that will benefit them no matter where they go.
MEET FELLOW STUDENT LEADERS AND INNOVATORS
Participants in the Conference will get to meet fellow student journalists who are equally invested in the media landscape. Through a day of intense learning and discussion, they will get to exchange experiences and perspectives, coming away as better leaders and thinkers.
