Well, its that time of the semester when everything is dwindling down and finals are here. For me, I only have one final exam and one paper left of my college career and then I’m done…forever. Or at least until I decide to go back to school for my masters. My experience interning with the School of Communication Studies was awesome and I had so much fun working with Margaret and Khalil. I have gained so much experience and learned so much about interviewing, writing for the media, and editing websites. I will use all those skills after I graduate in many different ways. Not only did I learn a lot from my internship but my whole experience being a Communication Major has really changed me intellectually. I have learned so many great communication and writing skills that I know I am prepared to work in the “real world” and get that “big girl job”.
To be honest, I am kinda sad that I am leaving the School of Communication Studies because I have gained a lot of knowledge and friendships here. The faculty and staff are already asking me to come back and visit and to more freshman recruitment as an alumni which I am very excited about. I will always come back to the place that has changed me for the good and visit my friends and “school family” (I guess you could call it).
Even after I graduate, I will always recommend to anyone interested in going to college to pick a communication major because of all the opportunities it brings and the knowledge. Having a communications degree has definitely brought many opportunities my way and I am so grateful that I got the opportunity to have this major. This major has gotten me two internships as experience and a job before graduation, I seriously couldn’t be any happier.
Thank you to all the faculty, staff, and students for helping me get this far because without your help, I would not be where I am today. I wouldn’t be accomplishing my dream of graduating college, something I thought would never happen and its only a week away. Thank you all and I will definitely be back to visit all of you and even tell new students that are new to the major about my experience being a communication major and working at The School of Communication Studies.
