Jayhawk Media Workshop

The Jayhawk Media Workshop is a four-day summer camp for high school students on the KU campus. Through hands-on activities, students have fun producing all types of media: news publications, video, photography, website and yearbook -- all taught by experienced J-School and high school journalism instructors.

Stay on the Hill

Get a taste of life at the University of Kansas. Students stay in residence halls on campus, giving them a preview of life as a Jayhawk. Discover what it's like to have a roommate, eat at campus dining and meet new friends. Plus, current KU students will be your guide.

Our Schedule

Your days at the Jayhawk Media Workshop will be a mix of independent learning, challenging new skills and choices of break-out sessions. The week's schedule is aimed at preparing you for a great next year on your student publication --- or a great preview of a career in journalism.

For Advisers too!
