"The foundation of great journalism that sits at the heart of Grady College makes it more essential than ever... the way we consume news, information, and entertainment is changing faster than ever, which means there's a huge opportunity for the next generation of storytellers to have an enormous impact on shaping that future. My experience at Grady gave me the tools to think critically, to ask better questions, and to challenge my creative assumptions. I am proud to give back to Grady and empower the college to continue to make such a meaningful impact on its students and the community. "

‘Another Angle’ accentuates the positive - Grady College

Last semester, a group of student volunteers produced a news magazine broadcast. "Another Angle" showcases the people and places of Athens-Clarke County and provides students an opportunity to stretch their reporting creativity through more upbeat and positive features than is traditionally found in a news format.

Preparing students for the real world of journalism often includes assignments of breaking news, or stories of conflict and strife. Seldom is there time to cover the positive side of news, but for a group of Grady College students, they are making the time by volunteering to cover another angle. “...
