Working in 1910 PR is an experience I don’t think I could have gotten anywhere else on campus.
Throughout my first few semesters at WT, I have struggled to find a place where I can dive-in and experience hands-on learning. 1910 PR was the best place to start. I got invaluable experience while also becoming more involved on campus. I felt connected to my school in a completely new way, especially within the media communication program.
Having 1910 PR as a tether pushed me to take advantage of the newfound relationships and helped highlight areas that I’m strong in.
What I was doing mattered more than just a random grade in a random class. Before, I was hesitant and scared to invest in my college experience, but I now have more confidence to go all-in and learn as much as possible.
One of my fears for after graduation was not being able to find a job because of my lack of experience. Now that I’ve worked with 1910 PR, I realize how possible it is to get real-world experience while still in school. Public relations isn’t necessarily what I want to do for the rest of my life, but the work that I did over this last semester helped develop my skills to meet deadlines, collaborate with a team, and coordinate with clients—all skills I’ll need regardless of what field I go into after graduation.
