NC STATE Student Media >05+/6=,9
RICHARD CURTIS, USA Today, managing editor/design > As a Design
School student, learning how to juggle a strenuous and extremely demanding academic schedule with the responsibilities of working at the Technician (editor, 19711972) were lessons that stayed with me over the past 40 years. It was one of the grand experiences of my life.
MIKE ALSTON, Teach for America, educator > My peers and co-workers in
Student Media (WKNC general manager, 2009-2010) became family. We shared struggles and successes, good days and bad days. Most importantly, we shared and reached common goals and learned a hell of a lot in the process.
GREG MULHOLLAND, Sageworks, senior analyst and director of strategic alliances > Student Media (photographer,
2004-2005) connected me with parts of N.C. State that I would never have seen otherwise. In my time there, I made friends University wide, and was able to understand points of view that I had never before considered.
BEN McNEELY, News 14 Carolina, senior web producer > Student Media (Technician
managing editor, 2004-2005) gave practical experience in journalism, but it also gave me more: A vocation, friendship and a chance to make a difference at N.C. State.
CARIE PAGE, Educause, community engagement manager, Next Generation Learning Challenges > One of the magical things about Technician (co-editor, 20042005) is that itâ€™s yours. Each day, eight pages of text and copy come from your camera, your keyboard, your team. Knowing that the student body would be pulling open the paper each day instilled a great deal of responsibility. And, at the end of the day, an overwhelming sense of pride for your friends and fellow staff members.

REBECCA HESLIN, USA Today, online life editor > My time in Technician’s (editor,
2005-2006) newsroom proved to be a onestop shop for my journalism education. I entered the job market armed with skills not taught in any classroom — the most marketable being experience in every facet of the news publishing process, something no J-school can provide.
ROB BRADLEY, D.H. Griffin Construction, marketing coordinator
> Everyone who graduates from NCSU will have a degree, but how many will have a demonstrated ability to work well in teams. Thanks to Student Media (photographer, 2002-2007), I did; and I have a career because of it.
RYLAND O. CLARK, Technimark, quality engineer > My involvement in student media (Wolf TV station manager, 20092010) allowed me to uncover my true potential. I was surrounded by a great support team that helped turn my dream into a reality and make a difference at N.C. State.
CORDERA “C.J.” GUION, State Employees’ Credit Union, financial services officer > The thing that I loved
most about Student Media was the fact that almost every decision lies in the hands of the student. As Nubian Message editor (2011-2012), it almost seemed like I was running my very own business.

LUCY TATUM AUSTIN, attorney > As
editor of the Agromeck (2003-2004), I learned to persevere in doing careful, detail-oriented work, cultivating a diligence which is essential in my current practice as an attorney. RYAN DANIELS, Democratic National Convention Committee, deputy press secretary > At N.C. State I learned how to create an effective pitch, which is the ability to sell an idea or story to someone. Working at Student Media (business office sales, 2005-2007) allowed me to practice what I learned and perfect my ability to pitch by selling ad space for the newspaper, radio station, and yearbook. My experience has translated into valuable skills that I’ve been able to use in every job I’ve had since graduating.
