I found out after today’s class about a SU chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists event that’s happening before our next class, so I wanted to let you know about it now. (And it’s actually happening in Salisbury and not somewhere far away.)
The SU SPJ chapter is having a Google Hangout chat with University of Missouri student journalists on Monday, Nov. 24, at 8 p.m. in TETC 129. (Here’s some background on what’s been going on there: https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/11/11/video-shows-mizzou-student-press-clash-protesters)
If you go and fill out the Extra Credit Sheet and bring it back after Thanksgiving break, you can get 5 extra credit points on your next quiz after the break.
Here’s another event I found out about today that is happening at 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 7, at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne (about 20 minutes away or so). Pulitzer Prize-winner Leonard Pitts Jr. will be on campus. Attending this event and getting the form filled out will also be eligible for 5 extra credit points on a quiz.
