Marty LeGrand, Shippensburg University C/J Class of 1976

Freelance Magazine Writer

“Our professors in the C/J department took an intense, personal interest in their students. I never felt lost in a system that was too large to provide its students individual attention and my experience with Slate—where I worked for all but one semester—landed me an internship that led directly to my first job. I was hired as a newspaper reporter before I even graduated. My career took off from there."
