Admissions: Alumni Profiles

Dave

Undergraduate Degree in English

I am where I am today because of everyone at Marywood.

In 2012, I earned a bachelor’s degree in English with a double minor in Broadcast Communications and Journalism. Leaving college, I thought I would become the next David Muir.  But instead of a pen as my instrument of choice, it became a camera.  As much as I like hearing and telling stories during the writing process, I believe visual storytelling enhances the writing of the story. In the end, with both of those elements, you have quite a product.

I work at WUSA9 in Washington, D.C. where I am a photojournalist and producer for Great Day Washington, a local lifestyle show which showcases the good things happening in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia areas.

And how did Marywood help me achieve success? Small class sizes are a definite with one-on-one assistance and professors engaging with students. The full-time faculty teach the foundations of the craft while the adjunct professors give a perspective of how it is once you leave college and enter the real world.  

The many media platforms available on campus are beneficial for students who want to dive in and gain experience. From a school newspaper that is rising to new heights of success, an award-winning radio station, and televised events run by students, Marywood has the tools to help you succeed. Once I stepped into my field, I was properly trained to be the best storyteller I could be.

I am where I am today because of everyone at Marywood.
