The Philip Merrill College of Journalism and Communication Department held the very first "Maryland Makes History" event on Tuesday Oct. 7 2014. Students celebrated National News Engagement Day by gathering on McKeldin Mall and read the Diamondback together.
Jessica Nolasco, sophomore, participated in this event for her College Park Scholars Media, Self and Society colloquium. Students were encouraged to tweet their comments and questions using the hashtag #NewsEngagementDay and #ScholarsMSS.
A student reads the Diamondback newspaper between participation stations where groups such as
C-SPAN, WMUC, and the Diamondback interact with students to test their knowledge on current events and hand out newspapers.
