Have you participated in any internships or overseas study programs? If yes, where and when? I was an intern for the School of Communications, Media, and the Arts for the 2013-2013 school year and am currently the Public Relations Intern for the Compass on campus.
How has your internship or study abroad experience enhanced your education?
My internship with SCMA required me to recruit students as volunteers and make sure all faculty and staff were completely informed. The internship forced me to be completely thorough with my communication methods, create excellent connections and relationship with faculty in the school and market a volunteer opportunity creatively. The Compass internship I am currently in is truly real world. The Compass puts on a variety of outstanding events throughout the semester with large corporations, and it is my team's job to market those successfully.
What activities are you involved with at Oswego?
I am the Vice President of PRSSA, the SUNY Oswego's chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America, and the Compass Career Services PR Intern.
Why did you choose Oswego?
I was extremely passionate for my major, Public Relations. Oswego had an extremely impressive Communications school, so I therefore made the choice to apply. After looking at the campus, Oswego seemed to be the perfect size to maintain the college feel but not get lost and overwhelmed.
What is the best thing about your major?
My major is just so interesting! The material in my classes explores the behind the scenes details of PR campaigns we are exposed to daily. The professors in my major are so dedicated and also have real world experience, amazing connections and excellent advice. I would say the best thing about my major is the outstanding connections in my field to alumni.
Generally speaking, what impact has the Oswego faculty had on you?
It continues to impress me how much time and effort Oswego faculty place into students succeeding. My professors always are willing to further explain information, provide real world examples and life experiences to relate class material to the outside world.
Who's your favorite professor and why?
Professor Bozek is one of my PR professors, my advisor and the advisor to the club I am involved in. Professor Bozek sets a real world expectation for her classes to follow, which I think is exactly the way a college class should be run. Professor Bozek is provides advice from her real world experiences in the field to make class extremely interesting and relevant.
Describe your department's atmosphere and how it has enhanced your ability to learn.
The classes in my department are all extremely interesting. The atmosphere in the Communications department is almost invigorating as you get to learn about the various communication styles, Twitter updates and different uses of social media tactics in a real world setting discussed by faculty both in their classes and programs. The atmosphere is always exciting in the Communications department.
What's the best thing about SUNY Oswego?
Oswego is the perfect size to maintain the college feel but not feel overwhelmed. Overall, I am just continually impressed each day as I learn about resources the college has to offer. From the numerous opportunities and tools in the Compass, to connections with Alumni in King Hall to club involvement and leadership development skills, it is very much impossible to not succeed.
Comment on how your Oswego experience has helped prepare you for a career.
Oswego is providing me real world experience in internships on campus that will prepare me for the future career ahead.
What opportunities has Oswego given you that you never had before?
I have the opportunity to intern while studying abroad (which I hope to do this summer), lead a chapter of a national club, teach a class of freshmen, meet with prestigious businessmen and women in my field, have an on campus job that I love doing each day as well as learn from professors with real world experiences.
