Hello and welcome to The Buzz.ie, UCC Journalism Society’s latest venture, providing a voice for Clubs, Societies, students, and others on campus.
Founded by UCC’s Journalism Society in 2015, TheBuzz.ie will be operated on a daily basis, providing students with up to date news from campus and the wider world, aswell as providing them with a unique and interesting twist on college life. The site will also feature advice for studying and mental health, two important aspects of student life. TheBuzz.ie will also give aspiring journalists a chance to try their hand at different types of journalism from current affairs to humor, broadening their experience.
Join us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/uccthebuzz, and follow us on Twitter @thebuzz_ie. Contact the Editors, Glenn Dunlea and Méadhbh Crowley, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and for more details on how to get involved.
Glenn, although relatively new to the student media scene, has already made his presence known amongst student journalists through regular contributions to various outlets. Now only in his second year of study in UCC, he has for the past few months been overseeing the public relations and advertising on behalf of UCC’s Journalism Society, which has so far included an entire rebranding of the society, creation of a new logo, and the advertising and promotion of various events both on and off campus. As well as co-editing and co-founding, Glenn is also responsible for the design of The Buzz.ie. He some day hopes to write for Vanity Fair or GQ.
Méadhbh has been an active journalist since her first year in UCC, contributing to on campus media as well as national media, featuring on RTÉ, Today FM, Spin South West and Her Magazine. She has held editorial positions on both The UCC Express and Motley Magazine. From her experience, she has a keen interest in journalism and aspires to be a writer for the Financial Times and The Economist.
