The March 2017 issue of The Pulse is the seventy-fifth issue published since the Fall of 1998. We asked former reporters and editors to let us know where they are now, their favorite Palo Alto memories, and what advice they would give to current students.
Brent Walker studied at this college from Fall 2006-Fall 2007. Walker was one of the first to earn a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M-San Antonio. He is currently a stockman at Hobby Lobby and an associate at The UPS Store. He also designs and produces digital graphics for business owners. Walker worked as a marketing assistant for two years at Steves & Sons Doors. He is a member of the Beethoven Maennerchor.
“My experience with The Pulse has helped me greatly in terms of design (InDesign) for my digital graphics and documents. It has also helped me to sift through the limited presentations of the media,” he said.
His fondest memory of working for The Pulse and being a Palo Alto student was “the wonderful editing days, when everyone gathered for seven hours to set the layout, and I went around helping everyone because I picked up InDesign with ease,” he said.
Don’t get frustrated when things don’t turn out as planned. Just like the angle of a story can drastically change once you start interviewing, the angle your life is heading can change as you go through each day. And usually the new angle turns out far better than you expected, if you give it a chance.
