National Public Radio’s “Michel Martin: Going There” program is coming to Drake on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. in Sussman Theater. The show, “Voting Myths and Facts About the Hashtag Generation,” will feature a discussion about issues important to young voters.

Drake SJMC has received a limited number of tickets for the event. If you are interested in attending, email Dean Kathleen Richardson at kathleen.richardson@drake.edu.

Participate in an international survey of JMC students

The Drake SJMC is participating in an international survey, being administered by the University of Missouri, called Journalism Students Across the Globe: Professionalization, Identity and Challenges in a Changing Environment. You will be asked to answer questions about your journalism education, experience and aspirations, and about the practice of journalism in the United States. Your participation will take no more than 15-20 minutes and it will be anonymous, though Drake will get overall data on our students’ responses. Follow this link to take the survey today.
