Recent UA Journalism School Graduate Published in 'The New York Times'

Posted By on Sat, Jan 23, 2010 at 11:44 AM

At the beginning of the year, The New York Times hosted their Student Journalism Insitute at the University of Arizona School of Journalism. Of 23 students selected to participate from all over the country, seven were students — current, recent grads and graduate level — at the School of Journalism.

One of those is Stephen Ceasar. A 2009 alumnus of the School of Journalism, Ceasar has had his work published by several publications in Tucson including, Arizona News Service, Tucson Lifestyle Magazine, the now-defunct Tucson Citizen, and the Arizona Daily Star. For the majority of his young journalism career, Ceasar, originally from El Centro, Calif., covered border news and the cops beat.

The New York Times picked up and ran one of his stories from the Institute about Chinese nationals immigrating illegally to the United States through the U.S.-Mexico Border, paying smugglers as much as $40,000 to travel from Beijing, China, all the way to Tucson.

Read the story here — Chinese immigrants or pick up a copy of today's The New York Times.
