The Associated Press Sports Editors has a new student chapter at the University of Texas at Austin.
The Texas chapter was voted in unanimously by the APSE executive board. It joins active chapters at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Ohio University, Oklahoma State University and the University of Maryland.
“We’re thrilled to has an APSE campus chapter,” said Kevin Robbins, senior lecturer at the School of Journalism in the Moody College of Communications and student advisor to the chapter. “With our debut reporting program at the 2016 Summer Olympics and the establishment this fall of a world-class sports and media center, the University of Texas at Austin is one of the best places in the country to study, practice and produce sports journalism. Our campus chapter only affirms that distinction. We’re eager to get involved early and often.”
Several other universities are in the process of putting together chapters for membership consideration.
