From the streets to the stadium, student reporters in BU’s London Olympics program have covered many stories of the 2012 London Olympics. Among them: Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s visit, a high school chorus group from Mass. performing in London and the BBC’s plan to broadcast the Games.

Students have interviewed spectators, athletes, journalists and others for audio and video reports for the program’s professional partners. Many of these videos have attracted thousands of hits on YouTube. This program was one of few programs to be featured in this PBS article on collegiate journalism programs covering the 2012 London Olympics.
