    I am involved in soccer at Luther and am currently undecided on a major. I believe my job at campus news has strengthened my abilities to communicate with others both in the office and on a broader spectrum, as well as develop quality pieces of work. My tasks through Campus News have reinforced my education at Luther by making me stay on top of school work due much like deadlines in effect in the office, as well as allowed me the ability to draft papers with value, and research efficiently. In the future, the learning experiences and work ethic instilled at Campus News will help my potential career through my developing communication, writing and typing, and much more.

      I am currently a management major with a communication minor and play soccer at Luther. My student worker opportunity in the news bureau has strengthened my writing skills, provided experience in interpersonal and mass communication in a professional environment and allowed me to build valuable relationships with Luther faculty and staff. After joining the news bureau team my sophomore year, I had the privilege of working full-time in the summer of 2013. After graduating from Luther, I plan on seeking a career in business management.

      News Bureau

        I'm currently majoring in communication studies. I'm active on campus as a member of the Luther Competitive Ballroom team and Aurora, Luther's all women's first year choir. As a communication studies major, I am hoping that working in Campus News will help me to explore my options in the field of journalism. Besides being a full time student, I'm a major music fan, love rollerblading, and am addicted to books and tea.

          I am a communications studies major and an Asian studies minor, and I think I really lucked out when I got this job.  By the time I graduate, not only will I have four years of experience writing for mass media under my belt, I'll also have spent four years learning about the ins and outs of a professional office setting and working alongside some great characters. While it is my dream to someday become a published author, I also hope to take what I've learned from this job and go into the field of marketing and advertising after college.

            I am currently exploring my options at Luther by taking a variety of classes in different majors. I participate in the Varsity Band where I play the alto saxophone. Working in the Campus News Office has allowed me to continue my passion for writing and increase my writing skills which I hope to use in my future career.

            News Bureau

              I am an elementary education major here at Luther. I was a member of the women's soccer team and am involved in SAC Concerts. My job at Campus News has allowed me to grow as a writer and as a person, and has taught how to establish work-environment relationships with my co-workers and bosses while also being able to enjoy the work that I do. In working with and distributing public releases, I have also learned a lot about etiquette and what it means to write professional pieces. Because of the responsibility of writing accurate releases in a timely manner and acquiring the information appropriately, I feel prepared to write public pieces in both an appropriate and effective way.

              News Bureau

                I am majoring in international studies and political science. I am a member of the Model UN branch of Luther College. This job in the Campus News office has already been influential in my career path. It was the sole reason I got hired for my internship last summer, because they were looking for someone with strong people skills, but also the ability to write press releases. This position should continue to help me down the road as I learn more and more about the communication world and how I can incorporate it into my career aspirations.

                News Bureau

                  I am a psychology major and an environmental studies minor. While I don't know what I want to do for a career yet, having strong, formal communication skills, both written and verbal, is very important in many different fields of psychology. Working for the news bureau is a great way to get familiar and comfortable with those skills. Outside of class and work, I am a member of Luther College Animal Allies, PALS and SAC Concerts.
