Oddly enough, it’s hard to put my feelings about my journalism degree from Marquette into words. Thanks in large part to the experiences I had in the classroom, the challenges we took on in student media and the relationships we forged in the pre-dawn hours of a Johnston Hall basement office, I joined the professional world well-equipped and unafraid to work with presidents, congressmen, business leaders, the underprivileged and every person I’ve met in a way that allows us to connect and communicate at a deeply personal level. I don’t think this would be possible without my Marquette education.
