I cannot believe it is the last full week of classes referred to on campus as “Dead Week” and next week (April 30 May 4) is finals.
I am fortunate enough to not have any cumulative finals this semester which gives me the chance to focus on my capstone campaign presentation. My public relations campaign team of six seniors has designed a 113 page campaign book that I am very proud of. Next week we will present our work to our professor, class, and other faculty from the School of Journalism. I have loved all the hands-on, real-world experience that I have had as an undergraduate student. I know that this campaign book is something I can show potential employers that will showcase the public relations skills I have developed during my time at WVU.
This fall I will begin work as a graduate assistant in the Office of Student Affairs at WVU and start my classes in my graduate program. WVU annually awards about 1,900 graduate assistantships which is a great opportunity for students to work for the university and earn both a tuition waiver and monthly stipend.
