The Washington Journalism and Media Conference

The Washington Journalism and Media Conference This year's conference will be held July 12-17 OR July 19-24, 2020 wjmc.gmu.edu #wjmc2020
Located in Fairfax VA, Mason's beautiful campus is just minutes from Washington D.C. The unique learning opportunities in and around the nation’s capital are only part of the reason why George Mason University is ranked the #1 “School to Watch” by US News and World Report. Nationally, Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s rank Mason among the 50 best values in higher education. Mason is the only school in the D.C. area to receive these distinctions. Prospective students can explore Mason's interactive site at http://www.masonmetro.com.

Check out what alumna Melia says about her WJMC experience. For her it was a journey in self-discovery!

Thank you for sharing, Melia!

"Perhaps the most important thing that I learned on my trip this past summer is: when someone goes to a place where they do not know a single person, there is a lot of self discovery that takes place. You are forced to introduce yourself to strangers who do not know a single thing about you, so you get to choose what they find out—there is no preconceived notions or information that they have 'heard through the grapevine.' It is simply you being yourself, instead of someone assuming that they know who you are."

Benzie Central High School senior Melia Lorenz got to go on a life-changing trip this past summer, and she wrote about it for us!

“With WJMC, I’ve learned that, whatever the correspondent puts into it, the reward is even greater. It can be really intimidating to get out of your comfort zone, but every time a correspondent does, that’s when WJMC is a special place.” – Matt Rasgorshek, WJMC Faculty Advisor

CEO of C-Span Networks, Brian Lamb has spoken at The Washington Journalism and Media Conference for years! He is not a traditional speaker and runs the event as more of a town-hall, involving the students and asking them questions- even having them debate each other a bit. Thank you for starting the conversation on journalism in the modern world, Mr. Lamb!
