At Thursday’s Spring Fiesta we recognized our outstanding mass comm majors, students who have received scholarships and will receive awards during Honors Day ceremonies.
It made me realize the SMC is home to many students who are engaged, involved and outstanding in media jobs, extracurricular activities and other areas of their lives.
This year’s Maroon staff continues to bring home awards for their writing, editing and photography work. Most of the staff members also work off campus in print, broadcast and online media. One Marooner is off to Hawaii for a summer newspaper internship.
In my PR Writing class, two students are active in theatre. One will be directing a senior one-act soon, while the other is performing with Southern Rep. Class members also belong to sororities and fraternities, work with UPB and tutor in the WAC lab.
Advertising majors are selling ads at The Maroon, raising money for worthy causes through fundraisers, working with the Louisiana State Museum and promoting events around town.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. (I’m exhausted thinking about it.) Mass comm majors set the bar for other Loyola students, and we are proud of them and their accomplishments.
On a side note: April is National Donate Life Month. Are you a registered donor?
