We would like to invite you to visit Medill for some wonderful events this fall.

Join us for one or all of these events, which will allow you to visit our facilities in Evanston and Chicago, meet current students and faculty and learn more about the program. You can also schedule a formal admissions interview during your visit. While events will be held in Evanston and Chicago, please keep in mind that the primary campus for the MSJ program is 303 E.

We hope to see you at one of the following events:

Join us for the presentation of the James Foley Medill Medal for Courage in Journalism. This annual award is given to an individual or team of journalists working for a U.S.-based media outlet that best displays moral, ethical or physical courage in the pursuit of a story. This year, we will recognize Hannah Dreier, immigration reporter for ProPublica, for her work as the AP's Venezuela correspondent.

The presentation will begin at 11 a.m in the MFC Forum. You are invited to stay for a pizza lunch following. You can also schedule a formal admissions interview before or after the presentation.
