Special Projects

During my sophomore and junior years, I participated in statewide journalism projects with IowaWatch.org, the Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism. Student journalists from Iowa colleges and universities were asked to interview students on their campuses, record video and take photos to contribute to the statewide project.

Spring 2014 project: Iowa student debt

This project asked why Iowa students’ debt is the sixth highest in the nation. You can find the published product here.

Part of my work was published as a separate story, which you can find here.

You can find my appearance on Iowa Public Radio’s River to River program, where I spoke on the issue, here. I come in at about the 3 minute mark.

Spring 2015 project: Brain Drain

Here, IowaWatch looked into how many students leave Iowa after graduation, why they do it and whether they come back. You can find the published product here.
