Today was the first day of Freshman Recruitment of this semester and let me tell you, I had SO much fun. I usually do Freshman recruitment every semester but this semester was different because The School of Communication Studies had more freebies and fun hand-outs to give to all the high school students. We also have a new student that does presentations to the high school seniors for The Communication studies, Rachael Morrell. Rachael did an amazing job presenting to the students, she explained to them what Communication Studies is, what you can do with the major, the different concentrations of Communications, and the potential jobs you can get after graduation. It was a lot of fun informing students about Communication Studies major, we love what we do here in Taylor Hall and we want to let new freshman know what all they can do with a major not to many people know about.
Communication Studies is one of the top degrees that employers are looking for because you can learn a wide variety of skills here, it combines three schools (JMC, VCD, and COMM) in one degree and that’s what we want new incoming freshman to understand. Not too many high-schoolers know about Communication Studies and it’s our job to explain to them all the fun and exciting opportunities that you can do with the major. We did have many students that were interested in our major and we welcome all students to Communication Studies because like I said, we LOVE what we do here in The School of Communications and we want to make all new incoming students love it as well.
My experience today was so much fun, I am graduating from Kent State in seven weeks and this is what I’m going to miss the most, telling people how much I love my major and all the wonderful opportunities it has brought me. Even though I am graduating this semester, I would always come back to help out Dr. Trebing in freshman recruitment because I really think more students need to know about the major and what Comm studies offers. There are only a couple events left of Freshman Recruitment during this fall semester and I am going to try my best to recruit as many high school students as possible in that time. The greatest part about freshman recruitment is meeting new people and being able to Market and promote what I love to do.
