“The class that has helped me the most was definitely Professor Johnston’s “Writing and Reporting Across Platforms” course. While it was not the easiest class, professor Johnston really challenged and encouraged me to become a better journalist.”

Ambassador Advice: Mennah Abdelwahab

“I’m a double major (Journalism & International Affairs), and I have found that each major requires different ways of studying to succeed. In my experience, journalism classes are a lot more about applying your skill set through assignments. As such, I recommend taking the time to take detailed notes about how an assignment should be completed and asking questions. Try to get your assignment done a few days before the deadline to get feedback from professors, if they allow that. It’s also great to find ways to intertwine your own interests in a story as this passion will be clear in your assignment.”

“I appreciate how much Grady feels like a family. The people in your cohort become some of your best friends, and the professors and staff all just want you to succeed and help in any way they can. That culture starts with Dean Davis, so if you see him around, introduce yourself!”

“Take the time to explore campus and find the rooms your classes are in before the semester starts! Some buildings can be confusing so it’s best to explore without having to worry about being late.”
