Major: Communication Studies
Hometown: Clintondale, NY
Have you ever participated in any internship or overseas study abroad programs? If yes, where and when?
have not participated in any internships or study abroad programs at
college yet, but in high school I did have some internships my senior
year. One was with a BOCES publication program and another was with a
postproduction company where I edited, checked, and added subtitles to
health shows on ION television.
How has your internship or study abroad experience enhanced your education?
my internships helped me see the kinds of jobs that interested me in
the field of communications. With such a broad major it helped me
narrow the scope for future jobs.
What activities are you involved with at Oswego?
from being a tour guide I am also part of the Oswego Honors program.
During the winter I work at the television station, WTOP, where I am a
cameraperson for the Laker hockey games. Most of my time is spent with
the Oswego Crew Club. My freshmen year I learned how to row, got to
race with the team, and was elected vice president of the club!
Why did you choose Oswego?
was the best school for Communications. No other school had a TV
station, radio station, student newspaper, and NPR station all on one
campus. I also want to study abroad, and I couldn’t do that at an
expensive school, so Oswego was the logical and best choice.
What is the best thing about your major?
Communications is fun and has unlimited options for jobs in the future!
Generally Speaking, what impact has the Oswego faculty had on you?
faculty here have challenged me more so than any of my other teachers.
In my first English class here I had a professor whose expectations
were much higher than those I was used to in English class. I struggled
a little at first but the class has made me a much better writer.
Who is your favorite professor and why?
Moore, my English professor is probably my favorite professor because
he pushed me to be a better writer. His classes were fun, interesting,
and he always gave us different options to explore for class
What’s the best thing about SUNY Oswego?
THE PEOPLE!!! Everyone here is so great and my friends are amazing. I feel so at home here it’s great!
Comment on how your Oswego experience has helped prepare you for a career.
has exposed me to many different people and ideas. Oswego has taught me
to be more accepting and open-minded which will help me, hopefully, be
a better worker and a better person.
What opportunities has Oswego given you that you never had before?
has given me an opportunity to be independent and away from home,
opportunities to work with television, radio, and newspapers on one
campus. The opportunity to make friends from around the world, learn to
row, and the opportunity to watch plenty of live hockey games in the
