It’s the last day of class … that must be why everyone looks so happy.
You may already have heard that some of your classmates who toil away at the Spartan Daily were recently honored for their work at the California College Media Association’s annual awards banquet in San Diego.
Spartan Daily staffers received nine CCMA awards, including:
Keynote CCMA speaker was Margaret Sullivan of the New York Times. She recently posted a column, “Lodestars in a murky media world,” based on her CCMA presentation and some of the discussions she had with those in attendance. In it, she talks about the changing media landscape and what it means for recent grads and current journalism majors. She also highlights the journalistic values she thinks will remain important for the next generation of journalists. Check it out.
Now that you’ve tuned up your resumes, you might want to head over to the campus Job Fair this Thursday, March 6.
The event, sponsored by the SJSU Career Center, will bring more than 100 employers to campus Thursday afternoon to discuss potential jobs and internships with students.
Does it sound bad to say we had fun at the Japanese American Internment Memorial?
This is the MCom 100W section 2 crew; students in section 1 will walk over to see the monument, designed by Bay Area artist Ruth Asawa, next week.
