Students regularly work with dozens of professional journalists during their stay here at Eastern Illinois University, both in sessions on campus, during hands-on reporting trips and at their two-day internships at newspapers, such as the (Decatur) Herald & Review, (Champaign) News-Gazette, (Robinson) Daily News, Effingham Daily News, Mattoon Journal-Gazette & Charleston Times-Courier, and (Taylorville) Breeze-Courier.
Students then publish stories and photos from their reporting experiences in both print and online editions, which you can find here at the Illinois Reporter.
