Student Reports is a new Bloomington Alternative online feature that showcases the work of IU School of Journalism students. The stories on the page are work from a 200-level reporting, writing and editing class taught by Alternative editor Steven Higgs.

The students were assigned to find stories on either the Civic Life or Arts & Entertainment beats. The only directive they had to follow was that their stories focus on the Bloomington community. Campus sources were only acceptable if they were legitimate sources in a community issue.

The following stories and links are from Fall Semester 2009.
