Student EngagementThe Yes/And Promise
"The Knight School not only added many tools to my arsenal of skills, but it helped me realize my passion and love for journalism. I will never forget how professors pushed me and believed in me...even during the times I didn't believe in myself. They taught me to dig deeper, question everything, and always keep an open mind." -Stephanie Bunao '18
