Congrats to the 2009 Dow Jones Interns

The Dow Jones Newspaper Editing Intern Program selected Penn State students to fill five of its sixty spots, according to the College of Communication’s blog.

The students are guaranteed weekly salaries of at least $350 for ten weeks at some of the nation’s most prolific papers. In the middle of the Death of Print and the beginning of Great Depression 2.0, a guaranteed paid internship is a really sweet deal.

The committee evaluated the students based on their academic records and their performance on a standard test and essay.

The following students were chosen to represent Penn State at newspapers across the country. (Names, hometowns, and newspapers were found on the College of Communication’s blog.)

* Marissa Carl, a senior from State College, Pa., Wall Street Journal
* Arianna Davis, a senior from Ellicott City, Md., San Francisco Chronicle;;
* Kathryn Dvorak, a sophomore from Chester, N.J., Naples (Fla.) Daily News;
* David Reinbold, a sophomore from Lebanon, Pa., Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette; and
* Emily Sher, a senior from Livingston, N.J., The New York Times News Service.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
