“At UM, both professors and alumni serve as resources and connections to help you take the next step. The U has opened a lot of doors for me!”

Drawn by UM’s reputation and unparalleled resources, Eddie Sanchez joined the ’Cane family in his junior year and wasted no time in honing his storytelling skills. The Broadcast Journalism major and aspiring news anchor immediately joined UMTV where he served as a reporter and anchor for English and Spanish-language news shows, reporting on everything from immigration rallies to ULTRA Music Festival. After graduation, an internship with Univision translated into a job with the Miami-based network. “I can honestly say I was fully prepared for the challenges of the real world,” he says. “I wasn’t just taught by textbooks. I was taught by real-life experiences, guided by my professors.”
