Our Staff

It’s a tough time to be a journalist. President Trump has called the news media “the enemy of the American People!” (and in CNS, we responded with tongue in cheek). Moreover, the news industry is under intense financial pressure. To survive those challenges, journalists must have an equally intense level of commitment. In one assignment in CNS, students articulated why they want to be journalists.
