Student journalists from the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, the University of Northern Iowa, Simpson College, Buena Vista University and Loras College saw first-hand the Iowa presidential precinct caucuses that drew worldwide attention the night of Feb. 1, 2016.
They covered the caucuses for the first time in their young careers for an IowaWatch/college media caucus reporting project that produced stories for IowaWatch.org, the website Caucus.IowaWatch.org and, in some cases, publications or broadcast stations on their campuses.
IowaWatch reporters Hannah Soyer and Danielle Wilde, from the University of Iowa, spoke with assistant editor/data analyst/reporter Lauren Mills in this podcast about their experiences.
Other student journalists in the IowaWatch/college media project were to speak about their experiences at the Iowa College Media Association’s annual convention in Des Moines on Friday, Feb. 5.
