Why We Chose Our Quote:

We chose this quote because it really represents why people choose the field of journalism. This quote is inspiring to those both in the field and to those who may be considering it. Henry Luce explains why he chose the path he did and we hope that by choosing this quote and putting it in the Journalism Lab of Hamilton-Smith Hall, then perhaps we can help someone feel inspired by these words and feel confident in their choice of major and overall career path.

Group Reflection:

This project really showed us the whole process of creating something, proposing it to a panel and even facing a roadblock and needing to start from scratch when our original quote was not chosen by the panel of judges. The Wildcat Wall project emphasized the importance of working together as a team to get things done. Overall, we enjoyed this project and we learned a lot of real-world applications that we otherwise may never have gotten the chance to experience first-hand through the process of this project.
