College Essay Boot Camp

College Essay Boot Camp is a one-week college/personal essay workshop, where students find their voices to create — start-to-finish — a polished, adaptable college essay for submission. Select student essays are published in the print and digital versions of ThreeSixty Magazine!

News Reporter Academy

Over one week, you’ll learn about the different opportunities in media and communication, engage in related activities, hear from experienced journalists and communicators, and write a reported story that will be published in ThreeSixty Magazine!

Advanced Multimedia Camps

TV Broadcast Camp gives students a lens into the life of a television reporter. In a week’s time, students produce a professional TV package ready for air with a team of professional mentors from a local station or media partner.  This advanced camp is produced in partnership with Center for Prevention at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota.

Radio Broadcast Camp takes students into the fast-paced world of a radio reporter. With the help of a reporting team, students create an audio story ready for the airwaves over the course of the week. This advanced camp is a partnership with MPR News and KRSM Radio.
