An update from Elena, a senior majoring in corporate communications in Meadows School of the Arts and business in the Cox School of Business:
As a D.C. first-timer, I found that the Hilltop on the Hill experience exceeded all of my expectations. Communications majors fill a wide variety of positions around the city. Our group had the pleasure of interacting with highly ranked executives.
One of the people we met was Dave Levinthal, a senior reporter at the Center for Public Integrity. Visiting with him at the Center for Public Integrity reignited my belief in unbiased, fact-based reporting. Levinthal is an inspiration for any individual interested in news devoted to the truth. The Center for Public Integrity hopefully is just the beginning of a trend toward nonprofit, transparent reporting.
