About HSJI

The 2023 High School Journalism Institute class in the Orange Media Network newsroom at Oregon State University.

High School Journalism Institute is a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience in journalism.

The eight-day institute runs during summers at the Oregon State University campus in Corvallis. Students stay in residence halls on campus; work with journalism professionals from The Oregonian/OregonLive and other Oregon media outlets; and use Orange Media Network’s state-of-the-art facilities. There is no cost to attend, and students who complete the institute also earn a college credit.

With guidance from their professional mentors, participants use real journalism skills to report and photograph a 36-page newspaper, as well as blog and produce multimedia pieces for The Oregonian’s website, OregonLive.com. Students also will get a chance to explore the campus and meet members of the award-winning university newspaper, The Daily Barometer.

The experience at the institute will help show you that journalism is an important career that might be the right choice for you.
