Meetings for Fall 2015 are Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m. in Sage 3412.

Students with a writing/editing emphasis and those in broadcasting with an emphasis on news are encouraged to join the Society of Professional Journalists. It is part of a national organization of journalism professionals and students planning to go into news careers.

Its goals include fostering high ethical standards, safeguarding the free flow of information and recruiting talented young people to the profession. Students may attend national and regional meetings of the organization and other gatherings where professional-development seminars are offered.

Other benefits include a computerized job-matching service; a subscription to The Quill, a monthly magazine published by the society and a mentor program and other opportunities to network with professionals in their chosen field.
