My Special Thanks: Jack Murphy’s Senior Goodbye

Special Thanks 2When I first came to Monmouth in the Fall semester in 2017, I originally was a biology major. I thought I wanted to be involved with science and midway through the second semester, I knew that was not what I wanted to do. So I was back to square one, and I thought to myself, ‘okay so what’s next?’ While I was considering my options, my mom offered me the best advice I could receive at the time, “Do something that will make you happy.” When she told me this I knew exactly what my mindset was, I wanted to pursue a career in the world of sports journalism.

A Tip of the Cap to The Outlook: Mark D’Aquila’s Senior Goodbye

Tip of Cap 1It was the very first day I walked into the Plangere building for my first day of Intro to Journalism Freshman year, that I was told I needed to go over to the prestigious, Outlook Office. I took the short walk past Hawk TV, past WMXC, and into the newsroom that I would eventually call my second home for the next four years. Little did I know that this office would soon be renamed after the legendary journalist, Linda Deutsch, and I would be her first ever scholarship recipient.

I mention this not to brag about myself, this University, or The Outlook, but rather to show everyone out there the opportunities that this hidden little corner of Plangere has presented us all with. I may not know what exactly the future holds for me after graduation, but I do know that The Outlook has prepared me for whatever journey is coming my way. It has taught me leadership skills that few college students have the opportunity to learn, time management that I will need for the rest of my career, and how to properly format a date in Associated Press style.
