Senior Spotlight 2022! 🎓

Robert Locklear graduated this year with a major in Journalism and a minor in Graphic Design. He is hoping to stay in Lynchburg for a while and work at a local news organization. His longtime goal is to go to grad school and move to a big city. Robert's advice to underclassmen is: "If you've got a big idea, go for it! So much of my best work that I'm most proud of was deciding to go after a difficult story or a super challenging project. It's something that teaches you a lot -- when you push your limits you expand your limits. Do the hard things."

Congratulations to Robert and all of our 2022 graduates!

Alumna Alert! Meet Brittany Slaughter:

Major: Journalism

Brittany graduated in 2020. Keep reading to find out what she’s been up to since graduating!

Tell me a little about your job: I'm a reporter and fill-in anchor. I am responsible for coming up with story ideas, conducting interviews, writing and editing together interviews and footage I've filmed then reporting on them for our evening shows. When I anchor, I also produce the show.

What is your favorite part of your job? My favorite part is the people that I get to meet and the wide variety of stories that I get to cover. I learn new things daily and get to meet incredible people.

What was your favorite class at Liberty? I really enjoyed the various criminal justice classes that I took. The classes prepared me for covering crime stories and working with law enforcement.

What do you miss most about Liberty? I miss the culture on campus. There is such a safe and joyful feeling on campus that comes from knowing the Lord is so present at Liberty.

Brittany’s advice to current students:
Even if your professor offers extensions on projects and deadlines, do your absolute best to finish your assignments on time. Making deadlines is incredibly important in journalism, if you can get in the habit of honoring them in college you'll be better prepared for your job when you graduate. Ultimately, do the best you can, work hard, pursue truth, and learn to leave your personal bias out of your stories.

This event is happening today in 1315 A & B! Attendees get a copy of his new book for FREE and EXTRA CREDIT for a class! ...
