About Me!

Mar 4, 2014 | Author: Allison Acquaviva

Hey everyone!

I thought for my first post, I would introduce myself and talk about my experience at Utica College so far.

I was born and raised in Utica, NY, so when it came time to choose a college, the choice was pretty simple.  I knew I didn’t want to go away just yet, so when I went to visit Utica College, I fell in love with the campus.  I knew immediately that this was where I belonged.  I loved the small class sizes and the one-on-one interaction between the professors and students. I loved how friendly and welcoming all of the students were, and of course, I loved the various activities that I could still be involved in as a commuter!

My journey into the PR field was definitely different.  I started out as a psychology major during my freshman year, and quickly found out that was definitely not for me.  So, like most students, I changed my major to cybersecurity.  After finding out that was not for me either, I tried to explore my talents and passions.  After talking with a few people who were in PR, I found it quite interesting and…the rest is history.

Though I have only been in the PR field for one semester, I knew I picked the right curriculum.  The professors are so helpful, and I’m thoroughly enjoying going to my classes every day! This is definitely something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life.

*Side note: For anyone entering college, or even in their 3rd year….know that it is totally OK to change your major.  In fact, It IS normal. Let’s face it: rarely do 17 or 18 year-old people know exactly what they want to do forever…especially fresh out of the high school scene.  So, my advice: explore all options, do what makes you happy, and don’t worry about the graduation date; that will take care of itself.

So….I’m definitely looking forward to continuing this experience! :) Any questions or comments? Follow me on Twitter :)
