When a presidential candidate comes to campus it provides a unique opportunity for journalism students to cover a story outside of the campus bubble.

Republican Dr. Ben Carson was on the Cedarville University campus Tuesday afternoon, and our students got to report on a national story. Carson held a news conference outside and spoke at a rally in the chapel.

Anna Dembowski, a journalism major and editor of Cedars, wrote about what Carson had to say about his vision for the presidency while he was on campus. If you missed it, her story is an excellent recap of what Carson said. She did a second story about Carson’s views on what the next generation needs to succeed. Anna also live Tweeted the event.

Photographer Campbell Bortel did a great job of capturing the event in pictures.  Take a minute and look at the photos.

Of course, we also have a good video report from Josh Burris, Cedars’ multimedia person this year.

We don’t get stories like this to cover often, but when we do it’s great to see the students step up and do it well.
