Minnesota Public Radio’s Broadcast Journalist Series commissions journalists and correspondents for a 24-hour residency four times a year, two in the fall and two in the spring. While here they share insights on their craft as well as on people and events. Hosted by MPR’s Tom Weber, all events take place at the University of St. Thomas O’Shaughnessy Education Center with a breakfast the following morning at the Minneapolis Club. Free tickets to the evening events will be available through eTix.

St. Thomas invites guests attending this event to park in the Anderson Parking Facility. The Anderson Parking Facility is a two-block walk to the O'Shaughnessy Educational Center. Please enter the Anderson Parking Facility at the southwest corner of Cretin and Grand avenues. For specific driving and parking directions to campus, refer to the available map on this page. The cost for hourly parking in the ramp is $1.50/hr before 4:00 pm and $1.00/hr after 4:00 pm. To avoid being ticketed, guests should not park in campus surface lots that require permits including the one adjacent to OEC Auditorium, or on streets around campus, which require city permits.
