About the Medill PyeongChang trip

Five Medill graduate journalism students will travel to PyeongChang, South Korea to report on the 2018 Winter Olympics. These students will either provide freelance coverage to news outlets unable to send reporters to South Korea or assist larger media organizations with various coverage needs.
