Meek School students are back in school. The halls of Farley Hall are no longer quiet and empty.
Shannon McElvain, 19, is an integrated marketing communications major. She said she’s taking an IMC writing class this semester she is excited about.
“I took the intro class last semester and some writing classes too,” she said. “We’re going to be learning a lot about what we learned last year in the intro class and incorporating writing into it in different ways. The whole focus of the class is writing and IMC.”
McElvain, a sophomore, said her goal this semester is to learn as much as possible about IMC and improve her writing skills.
“I chose IMC because it’s a very broad major, and I can do a lot of different things with it,” she said. “When I’m older in a couple of years, I’ll probably figure out exactly what I want to do. Right now, I’m still in the stages of figuring that out.”
Ethel Mwedziwendira, 22, is a journalism major and political science minor who said she is excited about the capstone class she is taking this semester.
“I’m really excited about using all of the skills I’ve learned thus far, incorporating everything including digital,” she said.
Mwedziwendira said the Journalism Innovation class is a combination of writing and photojournalism. Her goal this semester is to stay focused and find balance between school work and involvements.
“And not overworking myself,” she said.
Coleman Hobson, 21, is an IMC major. His favorite class this semester involves campaign marketing.
“It seems interesting,” he said, adding that he hopes to eventually land a job that involves music and marketing.
Hobson said his goal this semester is to make As and Bs.
Megan Miracle, 21, was also found in Farley. The hospitality management major said she’s taking a lodging class this semester.
“I think it just goes into the lodging industry and hotels and stuff,” she said. “My family is in that industry, so it should be kind of interesting.”
She said she’s also excited about taking a nutrition class this semester.
