What Our Students Say

The initial draw to the program was being a Lincoln native and also a fan of the College Radio Station 89X. Coming into the school and realizing that by my third day I would be Live On-Air, on that same station, was mind-blowing. I’ve been able to be apart of afternoon radio shifts, morning drive radio, and now an active member in the College Tv Station, LCTV. Being able to have hands on experience, starting the first day, has helped in my search for internships and future employment. I’m as excited now (for the next 2 years) as I was coming into the program the first day.
