    1. How long have you been at
Penn State Harrisburg?
I have been at Penn State
Harrisburg since Fall of 08. I
went to HACC before that. .
2. Why did you choose
Communications as a major?
I was initially a Business Major. I
used to tell my friend "I just want
to make deals." I found myself
acing macroeconomics but being
completely bored with it. My two
best friends were Comm/Journ
majors at Shippensburg and I got
a lot of great advice from them. I
realized there were a lot of outlets
in the Communications field. It
was a balance of creativity and
collaboration I was looking for.

5. As president of SOD describe
your duties and what is it you do.
I organize our meetings and yield
a lot- of questions from people
outside the club, but in terms of
the club itself, I see myself as just
another member. The whole idea
of SOD is about inclusion and
participation. Everyone's ideas
are important and it is important
to me that labels don't deter from
the creative process.
6. How do you balance classes
with being involved in campus
and running a club?
I don't really see SOD as a
traditional club experience. It
allows me to do all the things
I like to do in my spare time,
but gives me more resources to
accomplish them. A lot of the
personal work I do I share with
the club. It actually balances out
my classes in a good way.

10. What's been your favorite
thing about going to college?
The friends I have met and
the amazing professors. Julie
Kearney, Catherine Rios, Paul
Manlove, Patrick Bur owes, and
Craig Welsh have been some of
the most inspiring people I have
ever come across. To them, I am
forever grateful.
