Georgia Journalism Students Hosted at AOL by Recent Grad

Delayed for a day by the weekend blizzard, 25 journalism students from the University of Georgia made their way back home Monday night. During their six-day visit, they met with various New York media companies and organizations.

One of the more motivating tours the group took was at AOL. That’s because the person giving the tour, Lesley Hauler, was this time last year herself a journalism student at UGA. Now, she was the one giving the tour in NYC instead of taking them in 2015.

The group leveraged the blizzard for both some local news coverage and their own video report. The school’s DiGamma Kappa Professional Broadcast Society, which organizes these trips, was established in 1939.
