On October 19, 2016, six Knight Times and journalism students went on a field trip to the Rome Sentinel. Among these students were Eli Cicci, Halie Elhinger, Rachel Scott, Lauren LaForest, Allie Grande, and Miranda Libby.

After arriving at the Rome Sentinel, students were given a tour by the editor, Mr. Waters. During this tour, Waters demonstrated the printing process of the newspaper, and thoroughly described the role of each staff member at the paper.

When the tour was over, Mr. Waters sat down with the group to discuss the importance of journalism in society, and why there will always be a need for it.
