Every year, FPU’s journalism classes combine forces to cover the Honors Convocation.
More than 40 students from Journalism 1, Science Reporting and Feature Writing classes have divided up into reporting, social media, video and photography teams. The seniors in Advanced Journalism Seminar have organized them, but during Honors they’ll be sitting in the audience.
Journalism classes work together throughout the semester, with upper classmen providing editing support as newer students submit drafts. Then, on Thursday nights, all the classes meet in the JLab to produce the Exchange, their weekly online newspaper.
In addition, once a semester, the classes come together for a special project called A Day in the Life of Franklin Pierce. For 16 hours, students pull shifts as editors and reporters, chronicling all the goings-on around campus.
