In honor of the journalism tradition in England, our journalism class has been meeting in the coffee shop here at Mount Angel Seminary. According to one of our texts for the class, The Elements of Journalism, the first English newspapers developed through coffeehouses. The conversations in the coffeehouses were so numerous and energetic that each coffeehouse developed its own specialty in terms of the information it provided.
Below are some comments about our class from our current journalism students. Their comments are drawn from a recent article about the journalism class in the Catholic Sentinel. If you would like to learn more about our work, please contact any of the students or Sister Hilda.
"This class has given me an appreciation of the process that goes into journalism."

Quyen has found that the journalism course gives him "a better understanding of information and the responsibility of those who convey it."
