Caitlin Downing

“I think working with the Oglethorpe Echo has by far been the greatest experience as a student at Grady, just because you’re in the field and actively working in a newsroom. No other classes really allowed you to experience that and what it’s going to be like in the real world.”

The student classroom-newsroom dynamic is really unique, and it allows for a lot of growth and innovation. I’ve learned so much more here than I could’ve imagined in just these few months.”
