What we learned in Louisville

Each year, the NCSU Student Media sends a handful of students to the national college media convention of the College Media Advisers, College Broadcasters and Associated Collegiate Press. While it's fun to receive national awards, this is primarily an educational endeavor. This year, four students attended, along with advisers Bradley Wilson and Jamie Lynn Gilbert.

  • Marisa Akers, Agromeck photo editor and Student Media photographer
  • Alex Sanchez, Student Media photographer (who also assisted running the on-site photo contest and teaching the pre-conference workshop)
  • Susannah Brinkley, Agromeck editor
  • Kieran Moreira, WKNC program director
