Faces of DePauw

Mariam Lobjanidze Alumni

As a student journalist, I am the first one to hear and report on news on campus and in the Greencastle community.

Uncovering the Story

I chose DePauw because of its rigorous academics, amazing opportunities to get experience in media and a supportive tight-knit community. I wanted to be in an environment that would challenge me in meaningful ways and push me to strive for excellence. DePauw definitely lived up to my expectations, and I appreciated the opportunity to be surrounded by driven and passionate people who helped me thrive.

My most meaningful experience was being the managing editor of The DePauw. Through my involvement in the newspaper, I landed multiple internships and fellowships in journalism and met supportive mentors set me up for success. In addition, I covered prevalent issues on campus and stayed on the side of the truth. Being on the editorial board of the oldest college newspaper in Indiana and making a difference through my articles definitely impacted my college career in a positive way.

DePauw truly is an institution that cares about its students and I’d highly recommend students take advantage of the opportunities and connections that the university and PCCM programs offer.
