Straight from Emerson News, here’s the latest on the Beijing Olympics Program:

Thirty-five Emerson students selected to work at Beijing Olympics


Thirty-five Emerson students enrolled in International Sports Reporting are preparing to travel to Beijing this summer to be part of the official Olympic News Service (ONS). The students will work side-by-side with professional staff to cover Olympic events, to provide background information to the media on athletes and competitions and to create materials for the international press.

Emerson is one of only five colleges invited to participate in ONS. The other schools are the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Missouri, Ithaca College and the University of Iowa.

Officials from the Beijing Organizing Committee came to campus recently to test the students, and all of them passed with flying colors, according to Assistant Professor of Journalism Paul Niwa, who team teaches the course along with Associate Professor of Visual and Media Arts Shujen Wang.
