SPJ convention – Excellence In Journalism 2012

Last week I skipped a couple days of school to attend the Society of Professional Journalists annual convention. I drove down to Fort Lauderdale with six ladies from UF’s chapter, and we shared a hotel room right on the beach! Except for two sunrise photoshoots, we didn’t get to enjoy the sun and sand however because we were immersing ourselves in Excellence in Journalism 2012 — learning how to improve our craft, talking about exciting changes in the field and meeting other students and professionals.
