Because Cottey is primarily a two-year institution, our students graduate with experience usually reserved for juniors and seniors in journalism programs at larger institutions.

In addition, Retrospect staffers gain experience with some of the same software that professional designers use, such as InDesign CS4 and Photoshop CS4. This gives them valuable skills to use at their transfer institution or at a future job. Students also learn about budgeting, advertising sales and design, digital photography, and scheduling skills.

Some Retrospect students who have mastered these skills have gained acceptance into prestigious design programs. Katie Northern, the 2003-04 editor was accepted into the Parsons School of Design in New York City.

The Retrospect is advised by Mr. Steve Reed, Cottey's director of public information.
