SJMC Finals Destress Event

Women in journalism club

Please take a moment to take this survey, which aims to gauge interest in a Women in Journalism club based in the Drake SJMC. The club would be a safe space for women and other minorities pursuing careers in the journalism field by building an uplifting and supportive community. Any Drake student interested in pursuing a career in the media can join to swap ideas, internship leads, and stories.
