"I can honestly say that as a student studying journalism I will leave this school with more experience in my field of choice than most students. The program has exceeded my expectations entirely; the hands-on, absolutely real life work and situations I’m in everyday with this program is preparing me for the job market." –Julie Conlon

News can happen anywhere, anytime, to anyone. Reporting that news accurately and objectively requires a multitude of finely honed talents, including sharp writing and communication skills. It also requires knowledge of the technology and tools that deliver the news to the public. The Keene State College state-of-the-art production studio and student-run newspaper, "The Equinox," provide our Journalism students with opportunities to report on real life news and current events on campus and out in the community.

Here’s a look at how current students and alumni are making use of the tools and skills honed in Keene State’s Journalism department.
