Networking with Alumni Journalists in Summer Session

Summer Session students in Introduction to Journalism brainstorm story ideas with alumni journalists working in Washington, D.C., get input from editors on how to further develop the story ideas, and learn how to pitch local stories as national stories. They visit The New York Times, NPR's headquarters, the Newseum, and receive a training session from the Society of Professional Journalists and Google News Initiative.

CC Stories

Colorado College recognizes and honors the original inhabitants who first settled in the area and who called the nearby highest mountain “Tava,” the original name given by the Ute people to what is now known as Pikes Peak. At CC, we respect all peoples and strive to grow as a unique and welcoming community.
