In case you missed it, Drake magazine majors met on Tuesday night for Ed2010 campus chapter’s first meeting. The new organization, headed by Jeff Nelson, is seeking to grant magazine students more networking opportunities with editors and writers across the country.
At the meeting, Nelson discussed future plans for the chapter, including multiple speakers from high-end magazines who would be willing to share advice; networking events, where students can have some one-on-one face-time with professionals; and a mentorship program, in which current students will be paired up with magazine alumni who are successful in the field and have shared interests with the student.
Students filled out a short questionnaire at the meeting that will help pair them up with their mentors, but if you couldn’t make it, drop by the Magazine Center in Meredith 111 to pick up the questionnaire from Meagan Flynn.
