This is the point in college I've been dreading: being done and leaving. I've invested the last four years into being a student and I sometimes forget that I need to eventually move on and take off the "student hat." I have a lot to look forward to so I'm going to take a moment to brag.
I'm graduating with a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. I've had a wide array of experiences and internships all leading me up to what to do after graduation and I can say that I have a plan! I'm moving to Los Angeles, CA this summer to intern at The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. I have always said that my dream job would be to host a talk show and one day I decided that there would be no better experience than to work on one so I started applying. After interviews with 3 different shows on both coasts, I landed The Late Late Show internship and I couldn't be more excited.
I can also say confidently that I owe all of my successes that led up to this to having a liberal arts degree - every job and internship experience I landed was because of Goldpass, emails and announcements from my student community and employers looking for well-rounded students like those of liberal arts backgrounds.
Although I hate to say goodbye to the university as well as the CLA, I have so much to look forward to and don't even know how to thank everyone that helped me get here.
