VIDEO: The Gateway hosts Journalism Boot Camp lecture series



By Jared Kennedy

Brady Jones, a page designer at the Omaha World-Herald, will lead The Gateway Student Newspaper‘s next installment of the Journalism Boot Camp lecture series tonight.

Each month a guest speaker from The Omaha World-Herald visits the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s student newspaper office, which is located in Room 113 of the Eppley Administration Building, 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 6:30 p.m. event is free and open to the UNO community. Limited space. RSVP by emailing
