Jesse Kirsch (BSJ17)

“Studying at Medill feels more like a decades-long career: Reporting from the House chamber during President Obama’s 2015 State of the Union; anchoring marathon election night coverage plus field anchoring from presidential debates in 2016; reporting from Flint, Michigan amid the water crisis aftermath; producing a Holocaust documentary in Hamburg, Germany. All of that (and more) before I even had a diploma. Medill is a juggernaut giving students access and platforms to prove their journalistic chops in lightspeed. Since graduating, I’ve quickly had the privilege of reporting on more history, thanks in large part to the catapult called Medill.”
