We’ve got news! At the Excellence in Journalism conference in Baltimore, DePaul’s SPJ chapter was named runner-up for national campus chapter of the year.

Congratulations to this year’s board and the 2017-18 officers for all their hard work in earning this honor.

DePaul SPJ chapter also was recognized as the Region 5 Campus Chapter of the Year and Region 5 Program of the Year for Public Newsroom.

Here are some ways that SPJ DePaul can help with your journalism career this year:

  • The Public Newsroom series with 14 East magazine brings together journalists, experts and members of the public to learn about and discuss how to cover subjects that are important to the community, such as voting, mental health and cybersecurity
  • Newsroom tours take DePaul student journalists behind the scenes and provide a chance to meet Chicago professionals
  • Panels and workshops build skills and show how pro journalists produce great stories
  • Social events give an opportunity to meet other DePaul journalism students and talk about shared interests
