We strongly encourage communications/sports journalism majors to participate in professional conferences. This is a great way to expand one’s base of knowledge and breadth of contacts. Among other conferences, COSJ students have attended:
- The Associate Collegiate Press Convention in: San Francisco, Calif., Los Angeles, Calif., Seattle, Wash., Las Vegas, Nev., and Portland, Ore.
- The National Writers Workshop in Hartford, Conn.
- A conference of writers and editors at The New York Times.
