Journalism BA '20
“After graduating (even during a pandemic), I felt very prepared to take what I learned and experienced from my time within the JPR&MM program and apply it to the real world. I had great mentors who led me down some amazing paths and gave me opportunities to work hands-on in the sports industry, like working the Division I Women's Basketball Final Four and Championship Game in Tampa when the team won the title in 2019.”
