Name: Jordyn Jacques ’18

Concentration: Advertising/Public Relations

I chose Marywood because it is close to home and a great school.

I am majoring in Comm Arts because it is such a broad field that you can do so many different things. I can be involved in advertising and public relations and at the same time explore radio, news and television for fun all here at Marywood.

When I’m not in class, I’m involved in our PRSSA/AAF organization. Outside of school you can find me eating ice cream, hiking or enjoying the outdoors and spending time with my friends and family.

My favorite class is Introduction to Advertising, I found it interesting to see all of the different ads created over time. I also enjoyed creating my own ads and seeing what other classmates created as well.

The coolest thing I’ve done so far is live and go to school in Manhattan for six months. It was definitely a life changing experience!

When I graduate, I want to travel and find a job in marketing or event planning.

I’d recommend the Comm Arts program at Marywood because you have so many opportunities to succeed. This program gives you multiple possibilities in Communications to explore such as AAF/PRSSA, TVM, 91.7 VMFM and The Wood Word. All of the students and faculty are always here to help in any way.
