Students and Faculty to Attend Iowa Caucuses

Twenty-eight students and four faculty members will travel to Des Moines, Iowa, to report the political caucuses Feb. 1.

Some students will focus their efforts on media coverage of the events. These students are official members of the press while at the caucuses, representing the Truman Media Network and the northeast Missouri area.

Other students will also be conducting political communication research while at the caucuses. They will be researching the correlation between candidate rhetoric and the issues voters think are most important.

Students will be sharing live updates via their social media accounts using the hashtag #TrumaninIowa.

The media reports and live coverage from students will be available via the Truman Media Network website throughout the trip. Additionally, students will give live updates on KTRM 88.7 the Edge at 6 p.m. Feb. 1. Recap of the coverage will also appear in the Feb. 4 edition of the Index and TMN Television.
