As j-students head into the classroom, you can expect our Students’ Lounge to start buzzing. The campus press will also spring to life over the next few weeks. Students provide an important voice to the profession, like this student’s call to end complacent reporting.

For students, J-Source is an invaluable tip sheet. But we also invite you to join working journalists in online discussions of ethical issues – like this one – and to join Canada’s journalism conversation on Twitter. Don’t be shy – rookies keep the old pros honest.
