DWC presents at NSU University School’s ASPIRE Learning Lunch
Students and faculty attended event
On May 17, 2017, Department of Writing and Communication undergraduate students and faculty member Whitney Lehmann, Ph.D., visited NSU’s University School to speak to its high school students as part of the school’s ASPIRE Learning Lunch program. During the visit, NSU communication majors Jenna Kopec, Mike Lynn and Veronica Rodriguez represented the recently re-launched B.A. in Communication program and spoke about its new concentrations in Digital Media Production, Journalism and Strategic Communication.
“The Department of Writing and Communication was delighted to meet with U School students and introduce them to our re-launched major with its industry-driven concentrations,” Lehmann said. “We enjoyed connecting with U School students interested in the field of communication.”
The ASPIRE Learning Lunch served as an opportunity for University School students to meet with B.A. in Communication students and learn more about program, including opportunities to work with NSU Student Media and intern with DWC.
Lynn showcased work he has produced with SUTV, the campus television station, and Kopec shared articles she’s written for The Current, the campus newspaper.
“The audience learned that DWC has a lot of potential for students to grow and become the idealistic communicators within a fast-changing and fast-paced world,” Lynn said.
Rodriguez spoke about her experience working with the department as a communication intern.
“I had the chance to talk about the DWC Internship in Communication and the areas that interns gain experience in, such as web writing, social media and marketing,” Rodriguez said.
