Student Organizations and Media
One way our students stay on the cutting-edge of their educations is by getting involved in the various journalism-associated clubs and organizations available on campus. The J-School maintains several media operations that serve the information and entertainment needs of the KU campus, Lawrence and the surrounding area. J-School students also gain valuable experience working in these media-laboratory operations. Getting involved and networking with peers is one of the best ways to jump-start your future professional career.
KUJH-TV is available on Sunflower Broadband channel 31, with content online on tv.ku.edu. Students interested in working in television find KUJH-TV the place to test their skills, producing the station’s daily newscasts and sports talk program. Learn more.
