Lindsay Anton is one of our graduating seniors in Communication! Lindsay has served as a student worker in the Dean`s office for the past two years and also is a valuable member of the Forensics team.

This summer, Lindsay will be a PR intern for a news broadcasting professional development company. She will return to Liberty in the fall to pursue her Master’s in Critical/Influential Communication while being a GSA.

Lindsay would like to advise underclassmen to "employ their voices effectively by conducting thorough research. It is imperative to communicate with respect and understand diverse perspectives. Also, build relationships with your professors. They have created a nurturing learning environment which refines students into stronger Champions for Christ."

Congratulations to Lindsay and all of our other 2023 graduates! 🎓

Dr. Carey Martin’s screenplay, The Last Cruise of CPO Hanahan, was honored by the Broadcast Education Association’s Festival of Media Arts with the “Best of Competition” award in the Faculty Scriptwriting - Short Narrative Film category. The award, announced in an online event last week, is the result of a double-anonymized peer-reviewed process; the Festival received over 1600 entries across all categories for the 2023 event. This marks the second year in a row that the Festival has recognized Dr. Martin’s work; last year, his script Night Falls on Tinseltown earned the “Best of Competition” award in the Short Narrative Film/Half-hour Television division. This also marks Dr. Martin’s sixth award for creative work from the BEA, five total for screenwriting and one for narrative video. All have been earned during Dr. Martin’s tenure with Liberty University. “I am so grateful for the support of Liberty, my chairs, my dean, and my online administrators,” Dr. Martin states.


Liberty`s national award-winning advertising team is already prepping and getting ready to compete next spring! Right now, they are busy brainstorming ideas and conducting research and analysis. Stay tuned to find out who this year`s client is! ...

Luke Randle graduated last Saturday with a degree in Digital Media and Journalism with concentrations in Sports Journalism and Digital Journalism. Luke is also the outgoing Sports Editor for the Liberty Champion. This summer, he will be starting a job at CBS 2 Boise as a weekend anchor/weekday reporter. Luke`s encouragement to underclassmen would be to: "Work hard in your classes but apply that to things outside. Utilize the extra-curricular things like the newspaper and LBX to build your experience and meet cool people. The trips I`ve been able to go on because of the Liberty Champion and the games that I`ve been able to cover on ESPN with LBX have greatly helped in building a resume and demo reel, and seriously helped in applying for jobs."

Congratulations to Luke and all of our other graduates!
