Student journalists to speak on First Amendment

PORT ANGELES — Student journalists will present a program on the First Amendment on Thursday.

The journalists will speak at the Studium Generale at 12:30 p.m. in the Little Theater on the Port Angeles campus of Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

The presentation is free and open to the public.

“Students will present their experiences in New York City, including tours of the headquarters for Bloomberg News, Good Morning America and Democracy Now!,” said journalism Professor Rich Riski, who will introduce the students.

The award-winning student newspaper The Buccaneer has a new look as a result of student and faculty participation in the national conference, Riski said.

The critique of The Buccaneer at the College Media Association resulted in a redesign.

“Students embraced this opportunity for vision and follow-through, and the first issue is now available,” Riski said.

The trip to New York City “ended with a historic snowstorm, Stella, canceling dozens of flights out of New York and New Jersey airports, delaying return of many Pacific Northwest Pirates,” he added.

The park, which was closed for most of the winter in the wake of a severe November storm that brought down dozens of trees and left many trails in dangerous condition, is now open to visitors with advisories that many trails are still in need of repair.
