What some of our alumni say about working with us

Working at The Crimson White was the most important thing I did in college. I learned how to deal with crises, intelligently analyze the world around me and understand perspectives that differ from my own. And the relationships I’ve developed with both my peers and the professional staff have been invaluable. I’ll always look back on the lessons I learned there as I try to develop as a leader.

Victor Luckerson

Home Page Editor, Time magazine, New York City

My experiences at the CW helped shape my career. The experience of working for the newspaper gave me real life experiences in dealing with people, deadlines and budgets that are difficult to replicate in the classroom. I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today and consequently would not have had the fun & rewards I have had were it not for The Crimson White!

Dan Barron

Vice President, Entercom, Memphis, TN

I can literally trace all of my career success back to my experience at The Crimson White. It prepared me for the workforce and was essential in me landing the job I wanted – before graduation. If you want real-world experience that you can’t get in the classroom, then Student Media is the way to go.
