Journalism Building, room 106
Our guest speaker of the week is Chelsea Castle, Editor of Fit Columbus (a brand new magazine) and UWeekly. Her experience will be valuable to hear; she’s reached these positions within little over a year of graduating from OSU!
If you are interested in hearing about magazine journalism, the creation of a new media product, or just learning how to successfully get a job after graduation, stop by our meeting this week.
As always, feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions, or requests, and we hope to see you soon!

Trivia and Movie Night Ahead!

Do you find yourself testing your knowledge against the contestants on Jeopardy? Are you fascinated by government leaks and whistle-blowers?

Well here’s your chance to indulge in both activities!

Join us for an interactive Journalism Jeopardy session to test your trivia knowledge followed by a movie night featuring a screening of “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks.”

Journalism Jeopardy will go on until 6:30, and while we can’t promise Alex Trebek, we can guarantee a night full of fun trivia with a classic game-show twist; there will be prizes! Movie night will begin immediately after.

Sports Journalism

Calling all sports buffs: SPJ Ohio State is bringing Rob Oller of the Columbus Dispatch to speak to YOU about sports journalism!

Being at Ohio State, we can’t ignore sports and being SPJ, we can’t ignore journalism, so we are combining the two worlds into one this Thursday (9/26) at 6pm in Journalism 106.

Come hear from an expert in the field and get your questions answered. Read some of Rob Oller’s work here and be prepared with relevant questions.

If you love the Buckeyes, sports, or journalism, we’ll be seeing you later this week!
