Becoming a Senior

By: Taylor Popple

Today is April 14, which means there is only two and a half weeks left in the semester. This spring has flung by, and I’m not sure if I’m happy to become a senior. All of the graduates for this year are finding jobs, or have applied for graduate school. It makes me worry that I haven’t decided my future plans yet. I have considered graduate school, but I have confidence that I can find a job with my experience and a Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Journalism. Is everyone stressed out at this time of the year? Normally summertime is dedicated to internships or on the side jobs. I am happy to be working with MTV Networks in New York City this summer. I know that a standard communications major is expected to intern at least in one place. I’m glad to achieve that already. My hard work has paid off and it gives me one more thing to put on my resume.

Becoming a senior probably stresses a lot of people. Questions come up about future plans, and students worry about completing all of their credits toward their degree. I wonder if there are different stress levels for the variety of majors Penn State offers. As a communications major, I couldn’t imagine the workload an engineer or pre-med would encounter. However, I’m happy with my success in school, and I find that my interests can be very rewarding. Anyone who is in communications should be proud of what they have accomplished.
