Three Traits of a Journalist, Per Nathan the Prophet

If you have the traits of a good journalist, I invite you to come and major in journalism at Huntington University. We’ll give you the same training and education we gave Shelly Bradbury, one of our journalism graduates. When in our department, she wrote and edited stories for our campus newspaper — just as students are doing even now online (take a look). After a year of Bradbury’s first stint as a newspaper reporter, she emailed us to say that her “editors seem to agree that writing is one of my strengths, and I've got to guess that's in part because of the classes…where we scrutinized each and every word.” (We make our students true wordsmiths!)

Do I really need to go to college?

The college decision is a big deal, and one that impacts your future significantly. The pressure to answer questions about a major and your future career could make you hesitant about college, but the truth is that college will bring more value to your life than simply preparing for a specific career, even if you remain undecided. What you learn goes far beyond the classroom.

Are campus visits important?

Are campus visits important? The short answer — YES! The long answer – ABSOLUTELY YES! A campus visit is an opportunity to “kick the tires,” if you will. To get familiar with the quality of the campus and the education offered there. To get a feel for what college life would be like for you. No matter if this is your junior year in high school or if you are considering transferring from one college to another, exploring college campuses is well worth your while.
