My concentration is in Interpersonal and Organizational Communication. I transferred to Mason as a Junior last year, which means I ended up spending more time doing online school because of COVID than I did going to classes on campus. I definitely did not expect this to be my college experience, but I am grateful to all the instructors and classmates that made these last three semesters meaningful. In particular, Christian Seiter’s Health Communication class and Dr. Emily Moran’s Free Speech and Ethics courses were eye-opening for me. Those of us that are graduating during this time have truly conquered so many difficulties. I am proud to be on the other side of this adventure, and I am looking forward to starting my journey towards finding a career.
