Media and Communication Days started at Palomar College in Spring of 2009 as a way to invite professionals from the media industry to campus to talk to students about career opportunities. It began modestly with two days of 8-10 speakers talking mostly about print journalism. In Fall 2011, Palomar College partnered with Cal State San Marcos and MiraCosta College and earned a $1,500 grant from the North County Higher Education Alliance. Last fall, the group was awarded a $3,000 grant. The money allowed us to expand to all three campuses. This is the second year of the collaborative event. With the money we were able to draw in speakers with bigger name-recognition and do some advertising. Here is the link to an article written about the event. http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/apr/22/media-days-north-county/
