Where were you prior to PNC?
I completed a year of national service as an AmeriCorps VISTA with Indiana Campus Compact. I served on PNC’s campus and educated students, and faculty and staff about poverty and homelessness in our area.
Favorite Thing about PNC
I really love the atmosphere of PNC. I like the fact that we are a small campus and people know who you are. It is a great place to go to school and I loved it so much that I was excited to get a job here!
Most memorable class:
COM 320 with Professor Higgins. I was able to get a tremendous amount of real-world experience in the class because of the service-learning component. It was hard work, but it really paid off. The Tower of Babble exercise in the class is AWESOME!
How did your coursework or activities that you were involved in help you find your passion?
My senior year I did two internships with the American Red Cross of La Porte County. I was able to use what I learned in my courses and applied them to the different projects that I worked on as an intern. I was able to network with so many influential people in the area that I ended up getting a job offer because of it. I found out through that experience that my passions are communicating with individuals and giving back to my community.
What advice do you have for prospective students considering PNC?
My advice would be to get involved on campus by joining a campus club or participating in volunteer events. More and more employers are looking for individuals who have community engagement experience.
