Journalism students recently toured Bloomberg News and PC Magazine's offices in New York City. At PC Magazine, Hofstra alum and Editor-in-Chief, Lance Ulanoff spoke to students in detail about how to be successful in the journalism industry, specifically in the digital realm. Journalism major Daniel Levine raved, "The trip to Bloomberg and PCMagazine was fantastic. Both companies, while drastically different, appeared to be welcoming to students hoping to get internships. While I have already done an internship, the trip gave me some great tips for applying for future internships.

Eight Hofstra University journalism students from Prof. Scott Brinton's Current Issues in Science Reporting class recently participated in and are reporting on an Envirothon that took place in the woodlands around the Meadowbrook Parkway in North Merrick and Freeport on April 30, 2011.
The Nassau County Unprotected Woodlands Taskforce, headed by county Legislator David Denenberg and Norma Gonsalves, sponsored the event. Intended to raise awareness about environmental damage in the forests along the parkway, the Envirothon included a 45-minute lecture and two-hour hike. The students had an opportunity to meet with and interview a Hofstra University biology professor, a Nassau County hydrogeologist and a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation aquatic biologist, as well as elected officials. The students are now working on multimedia presentations about the event that will include text, audio, photos and videos.
