I gained the knowledge and confidence to succeed in my field. It has helped me go into the marketing communications field where I have found a job I’m passionate about and happy to go to each day.
Q: Did you have the opportunity to get involved at UM-Tupelo?
Yes! I had the chance to be a part of a few student organizations including serving as a student ambassador at UM-Tupelo and being a part of the student law organization. It was a great way to meet people and gain experience for my resume.
Q: What would you tell a friend who was considering working on their degree at UM-Tupelo?
110% do it. It’s a great place to go and learn. They are so welcoming and understanding of who you are and what you want to be. They want to help you in any way possible.
