On March 20, Upsilon Eta is hosting the Communication Alumni panel. The panel will take place at the Student Union in room A201. This event will answer any questions current communication majors might have about life after graduation. This event is free to attend.
Eight alumni serve as panelists to the question and answer segment: Adrianna Seals, Jessica Stevens, Andrea Sperduto, William Clark, Alyssa Chaplin, Jenna Damron, Jesse Uzzel and Megan Foster.
“The panel will be a great opportunity for students to have a chance to ask alumni all of their questions on what they did with their communication degrees,” Brittany Shaughnessy, president of the communication honor society, said.
Shaughnessy says that the panel will be a great networking opportunity as well.
Panelist Adrianna Seals says that students can learn about how to find a balance of the good and the bad after graduation.
“From a social life to paying bills and grocery shopping to spending eight or nine hours a day at work, I’ve learned a lot, a lot about myself,” Seals, panelist, said.
Some of Coastal Carolina University’s communication majors are already excited for the panel.
Public relations major Madeline Filling has some good questions for the alumni.
“For the panelists I would want to know how did the skills you learned specially [sic] through the communication, media, and culture department help you in your careers,” Filling, student, said. “What was the most memorable tip/trick you learned that is still in use today?”
Some students have questions regarding which concentration is right for them.
“I’m really looking forward to the panel so I can see how the different concentrations extend to the working world,” Bryce Ross, student, said. “I am between two concentrations at the moment and I would love to see how different they really are.”
After the event, students will be able to talk to the alumni one-on-one and learn more about their experiences.
The event will start at 5:15 p.m.
