Through the South Florida Chapter of The Society of Professional Journalists, 25 college journalists from five Florida schools recently “took over” The Homeless Voice, a monthly newspaper put out by residents of the The Cosac Foundation, a homeless shelter near Fort Lauderdale. The students spent the night at the shelter and reported on the people they met there (including a “Former AIG investment banker” who “just moved in.”)

“What happens when college journalists take over a homeless shelter?” is the headline on the resulting web site. (Yes, you should keep to yourself that joke about aspiring young newspaper reporters visiting their future living quarters/trying out for their future employer).
