February 21, 2018

We are the media and we’re not just here to get a story. We’re here to tell people's stories. Nowadays, the media has been painted as bloodsucking leeches out to get a paycheck only to use and abuse and move onto the next warm body. We’re here to say — that’s not the case. As aspiring futur...

April 26, 2017

We all had no idea how hard it would be to watch three seniors leave at the end of the year to embark on their own unique journeys.
