Kelly Christ, Shippensburg University C/J Class of 2011

News Editor, CNN’s Affiliate Content Newsgathering Center


“Shippensburg’s Communication/Journalism facilities and faculty truly gave me an inside look at what it takes to be in the news industry. I quickly learned that deadlines, high expectations, long hours, and unwavering commitment are all essential for this career path. Shippensburg had small class sizes that allowed for students to ask questions and professors to provided more real-world knowledge inside and outside of the classroom. Shippensburg continues to be a blessing to me. It has provided me with critical knowledge in the midst of breaking news as well as placed people in my life who have made a significant impact on my future.”
