Jim Seguin

Posted by Jim Seguin on January 22, 2010

Jim Seguin is a senior in the School of Journalism at Michigan State University. After spending the first two years of his undergrad working towards a degree in criminal justice, he decided that he would rather be writing, shooting, and producing in the J-School.

Jim was born and raised outside of Detroit in Garden City, MI, where he graduated with honors from Garden City High School. He was offered and accepted an ROTC scholarship from the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps at Michigan State, and he contracted with the Army during his freshman year.

Jim is currently working and training to not only become a talented journalist, but also a skilled leader in the military. Upon graduation in December of 2010, Jim will be commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army where he hopes to work in the Signal Corps, which is the advanced telecommunications branch of the Army.

In the meantime, Jim enjoys broadcast journalism the most and looks to shoot in-depth, documentary-style stories. You can check out his channel on YouTube to follow the evolution of his stories as he gains more experience.

In addition to journalism, Jim enjoys photography, traveling, and religiously following MSU football and basketball. You can add him as a friend on Facebook and follow him on Twitter. He is hoping to land an internship with the Big Ten Network this summer, as he finishes working on his bachelor’s degree.
