UNO student newspaper to host Journalism Bootcamp series


The Gateway Student Newspaper will host its first-ever Journalism Bootcamp lecture series.

A guest speaker from The Omaha World-Herald will visit the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s student newspaper office, which is located in Room 113 of the Eppley Administration Building, each month to share about his or her profession.

The intent of the program is to connect professionals and college students in the following fields of communication: newsprint, photography, graphic design, layout design, broadcast and radio. During the hour-long lecture series, students will ask questions about the professional’s “real world” experiences.

The event is free and open to the UNO community. Limited space. RSVP by emailing
