Celebrating 11 Years of Media Now Goodness
It has been pure joy to work with thousands of students and hundreds of instructors over the past 11 years with Media Now summer camp. But we have always been more than that. Our commitment has always been year-round support through resources, critiques with the pros and advice into college and connections for internships. For advisers across the country, we provide one-on-one sessions to help build (or rebuild) programs, connecting advisers across the country to support one another.
In this year of uncertainty we vow to do the same. We are working on new resources and opportunities for students and advisers alike to use to better themselves as journalists and navigate the unusual 2020-21 school year.

These are being created to give instructors some assignments and enrichment activities for advisers to assign, share with their staffs, or even watch and learn on their own.
