“The Association of Campus Journalists, LASU chapter took it as a point of responsibility to organise a sort of meet-n-greet, training session, discussion panel.

“To expose us to the core of the practice while having professionals on the field come to teach and share experience with us here.

“The intention behind the training was borne out of the passive nature of campus journalism on the LASU campus and the need to revitalise the vibe behind the reportage of the LASU community to the world.

“We have hence, partnered with the Premium Times a reputable firm for such course to come facilitate a special training session for our campus journalists here at the LASU.”
