COJO & College GameDay
College GameDay recently came to South Dakota State University and gave COJO students an experience they will not forget. Tom Rinaldi and Gene Wojciechowski, two ESPN College GameDay reporters, stopped over to Yeager Hall with Drew Gallagher to sit down and talk to several communication and journalism students about their exciting careers and what it's like to report for College GameDay.
Other communication and journalism students were able to work directly with ESPN by helping throughout campus for several College GameDay needs.

“I was editor of my high school yearbook. I loved being ‘in the know’ with what was going on around me. I just crossed my fingers I would still like it in college, and I do!”
Most memorable SDSU experience?
“Working at The Collegian. It’s been great work experience, as well as a great opportunity to meet tons of new people.”
“Basic newswriting just because it was so helpful to learn the basics that I’ll use every day.”
I did an internship at the Watertown Public Opinion summer 2017. I would like to work as a newspaper or magazine reporter.
