Russian journalists tour
School of Communications

 

Twelve Russian journalists, accompanied by three Russian facilitators/translators, visited the School of Communications Oct. 8. They visited with Elon faculty and students in McEwen Studio A.

The group also toured the new center for the Elon University Poll in the Gray Political Science Pavilion, where the print, radio and television journalists were given a short presentation on public opinion polling by former journalist and Elon Poll director Tim Vercellotti, an assistant professor of political science.

The Elon visit was a side trip for the journalists; they spent a week visiting Duke University's DeWitt Wallace Center for Communications and Journalism. They represent a variety of Russian media outlets, including Mariy El Pravda newspaper, Public Television of Russia and Novaya Gazeta newspaper's Ryazan bureau.

Journalists in the group included Anna Yevgenyevna Anisimova, Aleksey Vladimirovich Batanov, Aleksandr Gennadyevich Belokurov, Aleksandra Yuryevna Bezlepkina, Yelena Konstantinovna Cherkasova, Aleksey Gennadyevich Frolov, Oleg Valeryevich Kochkin, Nadezhda Anatolyevna Olshevskaya, Irina Ivanovna Osmanova, Tatyana Alekseyevna Polkova, Natalya Vladislavovna Privalova and Yelena Mikhaylovna Voronenkova.
