Summer Journalism Institute Program
Over 100 high school students from all across the country are gathering this week to eat, breath, and live journalism.
The University of Florida's College of Journalism and Communication is hosting their Summer Journalism Institute program.
The students will study photography, editing, writing, multimedia, and web producing throughout their stay.
They will work alongside with professors at the college and outside speakers.
It is a chance for the students to get hands on experience as well as a preview of college life.
"One of the main parts about this program is getting high school students ready for college. The stay in the dorms, they eat the dorm food, they work with out professors, they eat the dorm food, and they get to realize what its like to be a college student," said Johnson.
Johnson says he hopes the students get fired up about journalism and learn if it's what they really want to do.
