Public Relations, class of 2016

What piece of advice would you give to a prospective post-degree student?

Take advantage of opportunities offered through the program to get involved with the community and gain hands-on experience. Get to know your instructors and volunteer outside of the classroom. Your practical experiences can not only expand your network but will be crucial to growth in your career.

What was memorable during your time as a post-degree student?

Our class grew together from a group of strangers to close friends to industry partners. Seeing everyone progress professionally has been so rewarding and very memorable.

What do you enjoy most about working in Public Relations?

Every day is different in public relations and I have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects.  I enjoy connecting with new people and attending community events.
