Summer Journalism Workshop
Registration: Details and tips
Your week’s schedule
Orientation is on Sunday, June 23rd at 4:00 p.m. and required for everyone. The workshop ends on Friday, June 28th at 1 p.m.
Students must register for one of 5 sequences offered at the workshop. Advisers will be given a complete schedule of classes the first night. Only advisers will be free to design their own programs, selecting class sessions from one or more sequences, although they are encouraged to stay with one sequence to preserve continuity. Advisers will not be allowed to take part in the design sequences unless they have preregistered for the class. Advisers must register for one class on the registration form.
Dorm room arrangements
Participants will stay in Carman Hall, a Columbia University undergraduate dormitory. The rooms are arranged by suites of two rooms, each serving as a double, connected to a shared bathroom.
CSPA will make reasonable attempts to arrange for their stay in a single room in Carman. Chaperones accompanying students may not be commuters. Chaperones may not take any participants out of the building after 10:00 p.m. CSPA staff members will be staying in the dorm to supervise and assist workshop participants. Curfew is at 10:00 p.m. and is strictly enforced.
