I transferred to UT Tyler from Tyler Junior College in January 2011 and have been deeply involved in campus publishing ever since. I’ve interned with BSCENE magazine and worked as photo editor for Pine Curtain magazine. It has been the best experience. I love how UT Tyler’s communication and journalism programs are hands-on. You learn to do something by doing it. Not bound by textbooks, we’ve been able to design logos, movie posters and complete other projects that are so much fun. Plus, there are lots of opportunities to get a byline on a story. “It’s great to learn from faculty who have actually done what they are teaching. The smaller classes have allowed me to get to know my professors, too, which is a huge asset. The equipment we work with on campus is outstanding. “After I complete my degree, I hope to one day work for a magazine either as a writer or designer. But, right now, I’m happy getting experience in the field working on Pine Curtain and BSCENE magazines. It’s a rush seeing my name in print.
