All journalism students work on one of four student media publications, which are student run and have thousands of readers. Working on a publication gives students the chance to report on stories meaningful to the community. With both print and online publications, students get to experiment with new technology to publish in the medium that serves the story best. The Young Reporter and San Po Yan are the oldest student publications in Hong Kong, running since 1968.
