Stories Ripe for Adaptation and Inspiration

“I don't think you can learn to be a good journalist from inside a classroom. You have to get out and experience the challenges in real-time and real-life situations—developing solid story ideas, interviewing reluctant sources, sorting through reams of information and, finally, writing a coherent story under deadline pressure. Every story is a different experience that can't be replicated in a classroom.”

Robert Radziewicz, faculty adviser The Miami Hurricane, University of Miami
