We’re off for the summer — see you in September!
on May 12, 2017
Oakland North is a project of the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and now that it’s summer, our students are on break to work internships at other publications. We’ll be back to train a new class of student reporters in early September.
Please feel free to explore the site and our past coverage. Our student journalists have been covering Oakland since fall, 2008, and have created more than 5,000 articles, videos, audio pieces and multimedia projects about life in the city.
You can also listen to the most recent episodes of our new Tales of Two Cities podcast on SoundCloud! (We’ll continue the series in the fall once our new students have received their audio training.)

Comments post automatically without review from our staff, but we reserve the right to delete material that is libelous, a personal attack, or spam. We request that commenters consistently use the same login name. Comments from the same user posted under multiple aliases may be deleted.
