The AWSM@MSU chapter, led by senior Hanna Sprague, was honored at the 2016 AWSM convention in Miami at the end of July. Nine student members, along with chapter faculty advisors Lori Anne Dickerson and Joanne Gerstner were in Miami to pick up the award.

The MSU group learned a lot from the convention experience, and want to thank MSU JRN alumna Karen Wall Bush for being their amazing professional mentor, and to MSU JRN alumni Rick Gosselin for his generous donation to help send so many students to the convention.

Go Green! Go White! GO MSU SPORTS JRN!


Our Study Abroad is in the news!

The first MSU Sports Journalism is making some news in Rome, as the 22 students made a strong positive impression on veteran journalist John Henderson.

He wrote this in his blog, after meeting with MSU students to discuss his career at the Denver Post:

“I’ve spoken to journalism classes at numerous colleges. I can usually tell the quality of students by the quality of questions. Michigan State’s students get it. They asked how Italy has changed me. They asked what was the most memorable sports event I ever covered in the U.S. They asked what I thought of the direction of writing in American journalism.”
