Alumni chatted with about 30 current students in the Michael J. Adanti Student Center ballroom. Topics ranged from the journalism industry, relevant skills and how students can make the most of their time at Southern.

The event, hosted by the SCSU chapter of SPJ, is held each December to give students a chance to meet one-on-one with journalists, and get advice.
