“Without a doubt, my Grady coursework has helped me refine my journalistic abilities. In particular, my photojournalism classes have pushed me so much as a visual storyteller and documenter, and I feel more confident in my abilities to approach strangers and to tell a story through words, images or both.”

Skyli Alvarez

Journalism Student, Editorial Intern, Teen Vogue (Summer 2023)


“Grady allowed me to join a field with colleagues who have goals beyond themselves. I knew it would give me the leeway to find my passion and the opportunity to write with purpose.”

William Newlin

Journalism AB ‘21, MA ‘22


“I joined The Red & Black as soon as I arrived in Athens and realized how fulfilling and interesting journalism was. I want to tell stories that matter, and Grady has the classes and extracurricular opportunities to help me do that.”

Jacqueline GaNun

“Before Grady, I did not know how to shoot video. I didn’t know how to white balance or frame a camera. I didn’t know where to find sources or how to find people. I’d never published a story before. Now, I shoot, write and edit all on my own.”

Sydney Hood


“The volunteer opportunities I’ve had as a Grady Newsource volunteer and manager and as a part of Professor Cantrell’s political show gave me the confidence and knowledge I needed to make an impact.”

Elizabeth Hunter


“My biggest accomplishment in the past year was definitely my contributions to Grady Newsource’s political show this fall. I am so thankful for the feedback and instruction I received during this time, and I am very proud of myself for putting in many hours of work to create multimedia projects.”

Jenna Monnin


“My digital design course I took this past spring has really helped me utilize my graphic design skills when creating presentations for my projects and making sure everything is visually compelling.”

Kacie Geter


“Having the privilege of getting to know the people of Oglethorpe County and being trusted to share their stories was one of the formative experiences of my time in Grady and I’m beyond grateful to have played a small part in the ever-growing success of The Echo.”

Katie Tucker

“Grady classes helped me prepare for this internship by teaching me about target audiences, brand voices and social media analytics – all of which are critical for successful social media engagement.”

Kathryn Miller

“Finding jobs is all in the way you market yourself. A willingness to learn and perseverance can take you lengths farther than hard skills.”
