Sheffield Hallam University - Students get inside scoop

A group of 30 journalism students will attend the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games to work as press volunteers. The students from Sheffield Hallam University will join about 30,000 volunteers oiling the wheels at the games in October. The agreement follows a similar scheme involving Sheffield Hallam during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, when some of its journalism students took part in press-liaison duties. Philip Jones, vice-chancellor of Sheffield Hallam, said the project bolstered the university's "world-class reputation for its commitment to sports".
