"Tell me who’s to blame for thinking twice. I don’t wanna burn in paradise"
I never thought I would spend my 21st birthday fighting for the thing I love the most. Not a boy, or a toy but an opportunity.
I’ve met so many amazing people here at Webster and the people who have helped me the most I have met at the radio station. Friday I passed portfolio review, a passage all students in the School of Communications must pass before going onto an internship (required to graduate) most of my work was done for The Galaxy Radio (where I am the Promotions Director/ General Manager in training) either in a class where I applied concepts to the station or promotions I just did outright. These have nothing to do with radio or audio however they have been critical to my education and professional development
Due to budget cuts, The Galaxy faces losing all paid staff and being absorbed into the audio department. The only thing staff would get from this is a 4 hour Audio credit—none of the current staff would benefit from this and the upperclassmen that run the station wouldn’t even have room in their schedules for the class.
My staff is devastated, and they are looking for me to lead them. I am fighting tooth and nail with the rest of student media here at Webster to have our voices heard and make sure the same amazing opportunities I have are still there for students down the road.
Everyone deserves the best education.
