With a nod to our friends at the Elon News Network and its wonderful tradition, this website chronicles the travels of Georgia State students learning at media conventions. Whether driving to the state's press institute or flying across the
country for national conventions, Student Media benefits from the knowledge and networking that these events present. Our blog captures the live impressions our students get from the conferences they attend- what they're learning, who they've met and what they want to learn more about.

Every now and again, they'll share some neat tidbits about the cities and campuses they visit as well!

Student Media at Georgia State University includes six organizations: Album 88, Digital Media Group, GSTVNew South, The Signal, and Underground. These groups provide students with opportunities to produce audio, video, print journalism, and literature.
