SPJ in Spring Pt. 1

There’s been a long silence on the SPJ page, am I right?

Contributing factors:
Master’s Theses
Attempting to land jobs
Crafting masterful articles
Solving existential dilemmas

BUT we have been up to some low-key stuff this semester, giving CJS students a temporary break from these strains. Here’s a few snapshots to show you what we’ve been doing these past few, crazy months.

A few other spring events not pictured:

The Oscar’s viewing party & picks challenge (1st Place – Jake Crouse, 2nd Place – Jason Pham, 3rd Place – Nafisa Masud)

A picnic in Central Park

Post-Career Expo Happy Hour at Bierstrasse in Harlem

And other small events/co-sponsorships


Thanks for keeping up with us. Currently working out some plans for an end-of-the-year event and more.


Stay posted!



Who’s ready to dance like nobody’s watching???*

*(Note: a ton of budding journalists are watching and may write a story about your dancing.)

Well, the infamous SPJ tradition, Lucille’s Ball, is happening Saturday, December 10th, at the Attic Rooftop & Lounge (251 W 48th St.).

The party runs from 7 to 11 p.m. and is a semi-formal event (i.e. dress reasonably nice — if you don’t have a suit/fancy dress, you won’t be out of place // however, tuxedo T-shirts result in expulsion from the school).

Fun fact: THE WHOLE PLACE IS OURS FROM 7-11! Feel free to stay later, but after 11 p.m. a bunch of strangers will fill the place.

Tickets are on sale at a fixed rate of $25. When you order your ticket, an email will be sent to you shortly after (within the day or so) confirming that we have received your payment. This email will serve as your ticket to the function, so have your phone with the email or the printed out email handy at the venue!

Don’t miss out — tradition unites us with our history (which, according to the rosters at major news networks, is pretty damn strong). Also, if you don’t come, Trump already has a mean tweet lined up for you:


(Details on the “Roast and Toast” portion to come in the near future.)
