Best Moments in SOC:

  • Quadrupling her communication skills in just a few short months while taking Professor Menke-Fish’s Visual Literacy class her freshman year. For her class’s final client project she helped film a conference for a non-profit organization that supports families treating loved ones with eating disorders and that was a powerful experience in teamwork, diligence, and realizing the power of media to help connect people and advocate for change.
  • Having an awesome time helping shoot “Greatest Scene Ever” once a month in the Media Production Center studio with ATEC professors Greg Smith and Paul Oehlers.
  • Getting a job at AU’s Discover the World of Communication program for high school students brought her experience as a SOC student to a full circle- when she participated in the program as a junior in high school she discovered not only the kind of work she wanted to pursue, but also her undying love for AU.
