One Day for STATE
Another incredible year on One Day for STATE! Thank you to all of the 4,593 donors who helped raise $1,420,100 in just 24 hours for the university.
South Dakota State accomplished several of its challenges by receiving donations from all 50 states, 100+ faculty, 100+ students, and many others that unlocked even more gifts.
The College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences and the School of Communication and Journalism are specifically grateful for the generosity and support from One Day for STATE that allow us to continue providing opportunities for our students.
Go BIG! Go BLUE! Go COJO!
What is your major?
Double major in Business/Econ & Advertising
What made you choose that major?
I chose to add Advertising because I felt it resonated with me better and I had a strong passion for it. Advertising is ever-changing and I wanted to get a degree in something that I knew would always be pushing me to keep learning.
What is your most memorable experience at SDSU?
Anything freshman year was a memorable experience, dorm life, meeting new people, finding your best friends, not having any major responsibilities, all of it.
What has been your favorite class so far?
My favorite class by far has been the advertising capstone class with Heather. It was difficult, challenging, and yet the most rewarding. I got closer to people in my major, learned so much academically and got to learn new skills and put them to the test.
What internships have you completed?
I have done a few internships. One for the City of Brookings under their marketing department, one for the Brookings Economic Development Corporation, and finally this last summer I was an account service intern for Lawrence & Schiller. All of these have paired great with my education and have taught me invaluable lessons.
What do you love most about being a COJO student?
How close knit everyone is. If if you're not in the same major as someone in COJO, you see them in the den, more than likely you're in a club with them or have had at least one class with them.
What clubs/organizations are you involved in?
I am involved in Ad Club and sit on the board for PRSSA.
What advice would you give to prospective COJO students?
Do everything and anything to get involved. It might be uncomfortable to walk into a room where you know no one but in the end, it will pay off! Get to know your professors, sign up for clubs in your department, and not in your department. You don't want to wake up senior year and have nothing to look back on.
