Some Penn State communications students are getting a great opportunity this week by participating in the spring break international reporting project in South Africa.
Yes, South Africa, where it's warm and there are plenty of story angles.
This is the third year of the program and among the students participating is Kevin Cirilli, who wrote today's great feature story on Emma at the Corner Room.
CDT readers will read and view the student work from South Africa, because it all is sent through McClatchy's Washington Bureau to papers that receive MCT content. We're glad to feature the student reporting over the summer.

Best wishes and safe travel to the students and professors.
