From Julie Pike: I found a passion in journalism, and I found that by working for the Free Press

Name: Julie Pike

College Newspaper: The Free Press

The past few years that I’ve worked as a student journalist have shown me that I’m truly doing what I love. I found a passion in journalism, and I found that by working for the Free Press. As students we have the ability to come into the journalism scene with a new found energy and excitement. We’re excited to learn more about our field and to get involved.

Unfortunately, the future of the independence of our newspaper is up in the air. It’s because of that independence that we’ve been able to feel like we’re professional journalists, as that is how any other publication has run. It is so important for student voices to be heard because we are the future. I hope that this movement will draw attention to that and show colleges and universities across the country just how important student publications are.
