ILPC Conventions & Workshops

ILPC Summer Workshop

June 16-18, 2017

In June, ILPC holds a three-day intensive summer workshop at the University of Texas at Austin. We offer newspaper, yearbook, video editing, new media, design software, photography and adviser classes. Students have the option of staying in University dorms or commuting. Students take one class for the entire four-day period. The summer workshop provides a great opportunity for staffs to prepare for the upcoming year.
