SCOVILLE: Building an Inclusive Newspaper

My time on The Hoya has been fairly common. I applied with the backing of a journalism education in high school and passed up paid internships (and occasionally skipped classes) to do my job, and I had the family and support network to help keep me here. My last 3½[Read More…]

HUNG: Remain Resilient Amid Challenges

I arrived at my current, soon-to-be-former position by accident. At 11:58 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2014, a mere minute before deadline, I submitted my application to join this nonagenarian newspaper on a whim, never expecting to be accepted, much less become its editor-in-chief.

VIEWPOINT: Education Through Student Press

I am pretty sure I was only hired as a writer because the senior interviewing me was currently working on her thesis about Queen Elizabeth. My British accent alone earned my access to Leavey 421. I did not come to Georgetown with dreams of being a journalist. When I arrived[Read More…]

In Campus Journalism, the Best Education

The most cliche thing I could possibly say is that my Georgetown education has taken place outside the classroom. But, as you probably guessed, that’s what I’m going to say, and it’s true. As editor-in-chief of The Hoya, I’ve spent I-don’t-want-to-know-how-many hours in this office, skipped way too many classes[Read More…]

Who We Are to Judge

In the minds of many newspaper readers, the ethical editor suspends personal belief when on the job, having been trained in techniques that strip subjectivity from news reporting. Like a judge in the courtroom, editors in the newsroom are expected to flip a switch and become robotic reviewers of fact.[Read More…]

Valuing the Present, Minding the Future

Where to next? It’s a question that never goes away. It’s the question I’m asking myself as a senior, the question I’ve asked myself on each rung of The Hoya’s organizational ladder and the question I was asking myself four years ago. I’m grateful that the answer four years ago[Read More…]
