Barajas Accepted by Times Journalism Institute

Many of our alumni have had the opportunity to meet current senior Nic Barajas at events in New York and Washington over the past year. Nic has been the paper's assistant design editor, design editor and managing editor, and is currently serving as online editor.
Well here's some exciting news: Nic has just been accepted into this year's The New York Times Journalism Institute, which will take place January 2–13 at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
The Institute brings students together with writers, editors and designers and photographers from The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and Times Company Regional papers for 11 days of reporting, editing, designing and taking photographs as they cover real news events. Throughout the program, students have opportunities for intense discussions with award-winning journalists on everything from the nuts and bolts of the everyday life of journalists to the larger issues of the profession. Students selected to attend have all their expenses paid, including transportation, and also receive a stipend. The Institute is offered in collaboration with the Black College Communications Association and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
Congratulations, Nic!
