What was your major at VCSU?
I was a double major in English with a professional writing concentration, and Communications with a double cognate of digital media and journalism and a minor in marketing.
What attracted you to VCSU?
The small-town, community atmosphere drew me to VCSU. I’m very much a people person, so I wanted to attend a school where I could make strong connections and relationships.
Why did you choose English and Communications?
I originally wanted to go into English Education but then found that I have more interest in a business setting than that of a classroom. I chose my program to cater to my writing and communications abilities, but in a different way than through teaching. I learned that I held a wide variety of interest and skills, and I wanted to push myself outside of my comfort zone, so I ventured into marketing and public relations and found a love for it!

What do you enjoy most about VCSU?
