The Student Project is a great experience for current and recently graduated journalism students. You meet all kinds of professional journalists who are more than willing to give some advice. And as a bonus, this year the project was sponsored by Comcast and NBCUniversal–as a gift, they gave every participant a Flip cam and an iPad!
