Half-Way to Graduation: A Reflection
By Morgan Hurley, Senior Student

he summer before my freshman year of college, I remember everyone say-
ing the exact same thing. College is the best four years of your life, enjoy
every second because it flies by. Well, they were right about one thing, it
sure did fly by. The truth is, it was the best four years of my life. I look back at all
I accomplished, all the wonderful friends I’ve made, and all I’ve learned.
I began my senior year filled with anxiety. I was fearful to enter the real
world and leave behind my home for the past four years. My thoughts shifted
to finding a job, being successful, and figuring out what my next step is. I’m
sure I can speak for every senior when I say that this is one of those bittersweet
moments in life and most of us feel the same way, we’re worried.
Regardless of the way I feel, I have come to terms with that fact that it’s go-

ing to happen. No matter how worried I am, on May 15 I will be walking across
that stage. So why was my energy worrying about things I can’t control? Here
we are with one semester left. As classes begin, my attitude has changed and I
have turned my worrying into reflecting. I think about the 105 credits I’ve com-
pleted, the grades I’ve gotten, the things I’ve learned, and the personal growth

outlook I need to have about graduating. When I look back five years from now, Twitter

be an exciting time and something to be proud of.




Don’t hesitate, get involved with PRSSA during the
spring semester!

My PRSSA Story
By Clauderson Desinor, Philanthropy Chair

eing a dual major in Advertising and Public Relations, you really get to
experience the best of both worlds. It’s safe to say I became a member of
PRSSA rather spontaneously. It was simply by doing some extra credit
for Prof. Pollock in Basic PR Writing. I consider myself more on the creative and
account side so I was a little hesitant to say the least. I honestly believed this was
going to be a complete waste of time, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
My first meeting was good. I was able to meet some of the members from
last year, and instantly found a niche with them. They guided me and showed
me all the things that they were doing for the chapter and inspired me to join
along. Two people in particular that I met were Marco Martucci and Chris Tygar
who made me feel right at home. Sometimes all it takes is a peer or two to show
you the ropes and the opportunities that can unravel. Clauderson Desinor
Fast forward today, I am a two year member and the Fundraising Chair for
this school year. I can honestly say that it’s one of the most interesting decisions
I have made because I have created a bond with my colleagues that I can use as Goals for the
future references down the line. We’ve brainstormed together, traveled together, Semester!
and experienced some of the same things. PRSSA is an incredible opportunity
and I recommend EVERYONE to get involved and join. In the end, I can guar-
antee you’ll be happy you did, I know I have.
