To call a Comm Arts student’s schedule “busy” is an understatement. Between meetings, interviews, and writing, there is barely any time to sit down and enjoy a nice, hot coffee. Here’s a typical day for me (in photographs).
My day begins with class in the Liberal Arts Center. This is the building where most core classes are held, including History 100.
After class, I like to walk through the Memorial Gardens (as long as it’s a nice day) to relax. It’s always optimal to be ready for any surprises the day may bring.
After an intense production day, the newest edition of The Wood Word was finally ready to be distributed. The staff is responsible for placing the copies around campus.
Editors of The Wood Word are responsible for holding office hours. Even when I’m not supposed to be in the office, I like to visit and catch up on what’s happening around campus.
Later in the day, a Graduate School Fair was held. We filmed, edited, then posted it to YouTube. This was my first package.
At the end of the day, I spent some time in the editing lab. It helps to become more familiar with the audio and video editing software before I have to use it for a project. Audio editing is also fun to experiment with.
We all find ways to make our incredibly busy schedules work. Loving what we do makes it a lot easier.
