Orientation Committee

Major: Communication Studies

Hometown: San Diego, CA

What is one resource students should know about?  Writer's Corner!

Favorite class and why?  Messages, Meaning, and Culture: Dr. Spencer is amazing. This class has helped me understand society, family, religion, and the media through the lens of communication and how to make meaning of it all in my life. Communication is central and truly is key!

What should people bring and what should they NOT bring?  Definitely bring a beach blanket, a reusable bag for the farmer's market, and lights for your dorm. Bringing light and cozy decor into your room will make it feel more like home! I also found it homey to get fresh flowers whenever I went to the store to bring fresh life to the room. Do not overpack clothes... trust me. Switch out your clothes over breaks!
