As my senior year draws to an end I have started to reflect on the things I have done to get to this point.
The School of Journalism and Communication has provided me (and all of us too!) with so many resources. I’m grateful for the education I have received here at the University of Oregon.
The past two internships I have had with nonprofits were great stepping-stones and an awesome way to enter the public relations profession.
The opportunity to intern with a city government has also been an eye opener. I hadn’t paid much attention to city government until I had the opportunity to interview for the internship. I love that I have been able to expand my horizons in the public relations world. My internship has also brought me to a new professional level. Without these experiences I wouldn’t feel as prepared to start a career as I do now.
Looking back at my freshman year, I was clueless about what I wanted to do. I thought I was going to be a sports marketing major, until I learned more about the major and began to question its fit for me.
Now that graduation is 15 days away (what?!), I think it’s time for all of us to reflect back on the lessons learned during college, whether this was outside of our academics or not. Being an ISFJ, I’m still having a hard time grasping that I will be a college graduate on June 18.
Don’t forget to soak up these last two weeks and enjoy our last days as college students to the fullest!
Congratulations to you all, and good luck with your future careers!
