In 1973, with my newly minted high school diploma in hand, I enrolled in my first college class: Journalism 1, News Writing, with Marvin Jacobson at East LA College. This semester, a mere 46 years later, I’ve enrolled in Journalism 22, Photography for Publication, with Gerard Burkhart here at SMC.
In 1973 Journalism struck me as easy and fun. In 2019 it seems so challenging and essential. That, and, it’s exciting and funny to be walking across campus as a student one more time.
