Hello everyone! As we welcome the new school year, we also welcome the world of new possibilities. Each year, the School of Communication Studies brings on interns to help out in the various departments of the school. The Marketing & Public Relations department had spots open and we took them! There are four interns this year – check out our bios below!
Jowan M. Cole – nickname: “Jay”
Hey! I am Jowan – a current senior in the communication studies program, with a concentration in the applied communication track and minors in marketing and global communication. I have an immense interest in art, travel, and the world – which means I am interested in pretty much all things culture! Marketing and brand identity have been amazing professional interests of mine, hence the marketing minor and internship. With that said, I also currently work with The INDI Group, LLC., a really cool branding and artist management start-up founded by another communication studies student. After graduation, I plan to move to the United Kingdom for graduate school to study communication management
My blog posts will likely consist of: international students, culture in communication studies, social media etiquette and maybe interviews with the faculty. Hope you like it!
Katelyn M. Braunegg – nickname: “Kate”
I am Katelyn, or “Kate” for short. I am a senior communication studies major with a concentration in interpersonal communication and two additional minors in public relations, and organizational communication. I plan to graduate in May and move on into the real world. (scary) I really enjoy social media, reality television, traveling, dancing and anything related to entertainment! My two favorite things to do in my free time are drink coffee and have genuine conversations with others. (hence the interpersonal communications major)
I currently teach dance to young students in Hudson, Ohio and hope to continue after graduation. Dance has been my passion since I was three and one of my personal goals would be to represent the Cleveland Cavalier’s as a Cavs dancer one day.
I am going to blog about a few different topics including social media do’s and don’ts, how to sell a communication studies degree in an interview and how face to face communication is more beneficial than computer mediated communication.
Hope you enjoy!
Vincent Siciliano – nickname: “Vince”
Vincent Siciliano is a final semester senior communication major interning for the School of Communication Studies in Taylor Hall. He has been a cosmetologist for six years and a communication studies major since 2013. In his free time, Vincent likes international travel, electronic music production (house and techno), cooking, interacting with other humans and hanging out in his Ohio City neighborhood.
He is president of the Kent State University chapter of Lambda Pi Eta, which is the School of Communication Studies honors organization. With the organization he plans to do some philanthropic work leading up to the holiday season.
After graduation, Vincent will attend graduate school for a dual MBA/MA in communication studies, which he is convinced is the best way to have the flexibility to work in either the private sector or at a university.
