A memory submitted by Jana Wallis, Class of 2008

My entire experience in the Journalism department was incredible and I would love to list every single one of my professors (full-time and adjunct) as my “favorite”.

Tony Pederson’s class on ethics was always insightful and intriguing, and attending SMU-in-London in the summer of 2006 was an invaluable experience.

But my strongest memory was of Jayne Suhler’s literary journalism class; it was more like a book club and I learned so much about truly great story telling, and discovered two authors that have become favorites. Professor Suhler was a trusted adviser and wonderful teacher, she was a major contributor to my years at SMU!
