    I am involved in soccer at Luther and am currently undecided on a major. I believe my job in Media Relations 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 the Media Relations office 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 here will help my potential career through my developing communication, writing and typing, and much more.

      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 Media Relations 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 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 in Media Relations 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.

                I am a nursing major here at Luther. A member of the women's track and field team, I am also involved in SAC Concerts, PALs, and the Luther College Concert Band. My job in the Media Relations office has been influential to my transition into college and throughout my first year on campus. Along with improving my writing and communication skills this job has also enhanced my time management skills and led me to amazing friendships. The skills and responsibilities I learned in this position have given me the knowledge to navigate the communication world and I am very excited to continue learning and growing within Media Relations.

                  I'm currently majoring in anthropology and am involved with the women's soccer team at Luther. My job in Media Relations allows me to better my writing skills and continue to find out more about campus. By working in the Media Relations office I have learned how to handle working in an office, from answering the phone to writing news releases. Through the personal connections I've made with my coworkers and bosses, I feel that my social skills have also improved and will help with networking in the future.

                    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 Media Relations 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.
