ABC enrolls at five campuses

ABC News is going back to school.

The network announced Wednesday that it was opening five college campus bureaus in September at journalism schools around the country.

The multimedia bureaus will be staffed by undergraduate and graduate journalism students who will report stories for the news division's online offerings, as well as its broadcast news programs.

ABC News will provide mentoring and stipends for the bureaus' student staffers, as well as the video and editing equipment to produce their stories.

The bureaus will be located at Arizona State University, Syracuse University, University of Florida in Gainesville, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and University of Texas at Austin.
