What Students are Saying About our Programs and Professors

"There isn't a bad professor in the Journalism Department. It doesn't matter if you're taking a 100 or 400 level class, you'll always come out of each class more knowledgeable because of the professional experience each professor has."

Tyler Crebar
Public Relations Major

"For me, journalism fills a very specific need in my life. When I work on a story, I get the same kind of excitement and adrenaline rush that I used to get when I was nine-years-old and thought I would be the next J.K. Rowling. Journalism combines my two greatest passions, writing and learning. Journalism lets you learn something new every day, and then challenges you to share what you learned in an entertaining and informative way. The students and staff within Western’s journalism department helped me see where it was that I truly belonged, and I’ll always be grateful for that. I can’t wait to learn even more from my professors and peers, and I especially can’t wait to see where in journalism my future takes me. Thank you for the opportunity to express how much Western's journalism program means to me, it's really changed my life and I can never find enough ways to show how much that means to me."

"Professor McLeod is one the best Public Relations (PR) professors here at Western. She is incredible at making content relevant and interesting for students and is very knowledgeable of the field. If you ever have the chance to take a class with her, DO IT!"

Public Relations Minor

"I remember my high school teachers telling me that I should appreciate their support because once I get to a university my professors won't care about me at all. I've never felt that way while studying journalism at Western. The faculty is incredible. I've built life-long connections here and I wouldn't be prepared for the real world if it wasn't for them."
