Class of 2013
I love to write, and I love to tell stories and hear other people’s stories. Journalism allows me to incorporate all of those into my field of study.
How is KSC meeting your expectations?
KSC is exceeding my expectations. The professors are highly engaged in the learning process. I love the small class sizes and attention to detail when it comes to the curriculum. Additionally, I’ve established great relationships with my academic advisors because they’ve helped me make the best possible decisions for my college career and in laying the foundation for my life once I graduate.
Have there been any unexpected benefits, opportunities, and experiences here at Keene State?
I’ve gotten the opportunity to study abroad in South Africa in the Honors Program. That was a life-changing experience. I’ve also been afforded opportunities in my field such as participation in collegiate journalist conferences that I loved.
What are your future plans, and how is your experience at Keene State preparing you?
I plan on going to grad school, and would like to be a professor someday. I wouldn’t have realized what I wanted to do with my life if I hadn’t come to KSC. Being involved with film and journalism made me realize how much I love what I’m doing and I'd like to pursue this in the future.
How are you involved with the local community?
I’m involved through my work at the newspaper. Through the interviewing process, I have established relationships with a variety of people off campus. I rely on those relationship to get my work done at the paper.
What is your best advice for an incoming student?
First of all, I would recommend this field of study and this college to anyone who loves writing. I'd add that incoming students should be open about the college experience. Don’t be afraid to become a part of something, whether it’s a sports team, academic club, or recreational club. It’s a great way to meet people and establish long-lasting relationships. Finally, I'd say make the best of all the features of the KSC campus because four years flies by.
