In Their Own Words:

Allyssa Lile, LLC Student:

"The JAMS LLC is a totally out of this world experience. It provides several opportunities no college would otherwise provide. If you want a leg up in the field of JAMS, it would be silly not to enroll in the LLC. You meet great people, get great connections, and have a 100% unique experience." 


Jessica McBride, LLC Faculty:

"I've seen the JAMS LLC students grow in confidence and excitement about media careers. I have watched them interact with prominent media professionals and learn more about how media careers work. I've witnessed their writing and reporting instincts grow and develop."
