Our sports reporters covered the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl with some incredible equipment lent to us for the event by Canon USA. Tyler Kaufman mentored the students, and what you see here is just a sweet slow walk onto the field.

Students on the Job

Before COVID, JRNOLA students were credentialled to cover Saints games, Pelicans games, and other major sporting events—from both the sidelines and the pressbox. We also covered regional and professional theatrical productions, concerts, and festivals for students interested in becoming cultural writers. All under the guidance of working professional journalists. We let students choose events that best fit their enthusiasm for editorial coverage—because the best stories always come from a place of passion.
