I found working on The Rampage to be
a truly invaluable experience.
The Rampage also opened up other opportunities for me, including participating in The Washington Post's Young Journalist Development Program and the Newseum's Student Advisory Board.
I owe a lot of my success to The Rampage!
Samantha Cooney
Editor in Chief, 2011-2012

-Rampage helped me realize the importance of leadership and teamwork. It helped me realize the impact that writing has on the lives of others
-I want to shape the lives of others, either through writing or by some other means.
-I can't thank the Journalism Academy enough for improving my writing ability and instilling in me the
values of leadership, hard work and dedication.
Dina Yared
Editor in Chief 2011-2012
-He was involved in our nationally award winning newspaper all four years, and rose from staff writer, to Managing Editor, to Editor in Chief.
-In addition, the leadership skills he learned were invaluable.
I'm convinced that his work on The Rampage was one of the key elements in his nomination.
-It's also important to note how much fun he had, Nick really enjoyed the friendships and camaraderie in the Journalism Academy.

It takes all types...
What we do:
Students produce a fully independent newspaper eight times a year. Students come up with the stories, the photos, the page layouts, even our budget.
J1 (Introduction to Journalism) prepares students for working on the paper.
J2 (Advanced Journalism) is when we make the paper. We currently have over 50 students on staff.
