What happens next is magic. We believe that journalism education works best when students are covering real stories for a real audience. So every afternoon, students learn by doing. Working in small news teams, they visit and learn from experts at the Cantor Art Museum, the Hoover Institution and the Archive of Recorded Sound, among other campus landmarks. They cover sports events such as the Prefontaine Classic and street life in Palo Alto. Guest speakers and newsmakers visit, offering more chances to learn and report. Under the leadership of talented team leaders, students produce and publish stories as they develop. And we practice the spirit of the newsroom — the ability to learn together, make ethical decisions together, support each other in the work, and experience the laughter and fun of true collaboration.
