Become a part of journalism


Kai Arellano, Staff Writer

The fall semester is almost over and it’s the time for students to start looking into enrolling for the spring depending on the registration dates. Some students may have their eyes set on a major already but for those who are still searching, the Experience would like to encourage you to enroll in our journalism program and give it a try.

Have you ever really wanted to know more? Does it feel almost like you’re not in touch with what is going on throughout campus or do you maybe want to be in the know with the campus life around you? 

If those are questions you have, then the journalism program can help with that. Throughout the years the program has been bringing the news and knowledge to the entire campus of LMC. 

The truth and facts are always the priority no matter what and understanding both sides of every story is the aim. We bring news to the students and faculty of LMC and also give them the opportunity to voice their opinions.

Not only that, but it teaches life skills that help in your daily life through writing skills, asking the right questions and making connections. It may sound scary having to talk to new faces everyday, but once you’ve done it once then you’ll enjoy every minute of it. It’s a great way of getting to know everyone on campus and it gives you the power to tell stories that would’ve gone unheard of. For a lot of students this is a huge opportunity to go and speak about whatever is on your mind or even getting yourself out there. With the many features we do, anybody is somebody and their stories need to be told as well. It’s also a place for those who want to have a group of many come together as a unit.

The staff has always been a tight-knit group of like-minded people who are willing to help one another with anything and the instructor truly cares for the profession and the people involved. Everyone wants the best for everyone and even if one person is down we go out of each other’s way to pick each other up through even some of the roughest times. Nobody is alone, and that’s the biggest thing we prioritize in the Journalism Lab.

You may doubt yourself and think that this field is not for you, but even journalists get cold feet. Journalism is a field that anyone can do and strive in if they believe in themselves. It’s not just for the exposure. We do it for the experience!
