Grad students return to campus with internship experience under their belt

by Robert Stewart, Director

Masters students Lu Wu and Brendon Butler spent fall semester doing what they love: Covering news for media organizations. But their experiences could not have been more different.

Brendon Butler spent two months reporting from the west African nation of Senegal. The internship with a radio station was funded in part by the school’s John R. Wilhelm Foreign Correspondence Internship Program.

Here are some photos taken by Butler, set to music from the region.

Lu Wu, a student from China, recently completed an internship with CNN in Atlanta. One of the highlights was working for a major news organization during the 2012 election.
