Alexandra Parker, Media Arts Major
“I was the news director of campus radio station WCWP and now I’m an editor-in-chief of The Pioneer. I love the news. I learned a lot about the industry from my professors. There is also a great staff of students running the campus media outlets. We are a big family.”
