Ever thought about working in the fast-paced world of television news? Completely student run, STN is the Student Television Network at the University of Hartford, offering a terrific opportunity to experience firsthand how news is gathered and reported in a television format. If you are drawn to STN’s mission of providing a professional broadcasting experience to students, all you need to do is show up ready to work. You can start to contribute to STN your first semester as a freshman.
Each week STN Channel 2 produces a live news program, with student news and sports anchors, camera operators, directors, and all of the other key positions needed to produce the program. The news they report was gathered by students who research and write stories and videographers who shoot the footage. There are so many ways that you can get involved as a student—you’ll learn even more if you take on several roles at STN. Besides learning technical skills of news reporting and broadcasting, you’ll gain valuable communication and teamwork skills. You’ll have the chance to meet students from other majors and colleges on campus, broadening and diversifying your network of social contacts and friends.
