A journalist is a fabulous type of person. His or her job is to report what is happening in the now. Without journalists in this world, how would we ever get news? Erin Drummond, a sophomore at West Virginia University is someone who decided to major in journalism. CL was lucky enough to meet with the sophisticated Drummond to get more information about her school as well as how she picked her major.
College Lifestyles TM: Why did you pick the journalism field of study?
Erin Drummond: Honestly everything. The thing is that for years I didn’t know what to do with my life. I really didn’t know what to study when I got into college. When I picked the journalism program here at WVU (West Virginia University), I couldn’t see myself working in any other field or doing anything else. I just really love it! It has been such a great journey so far being in this field. I encourage anyone who loves writing to try out this field.
CL: Are you involved in any clubs or activities on campus? If so, what do you like about them?
ED: I am involved in Omega Phi Alpha and I am the historian for that sorority. Our sorority is the only community service sorority on campus, so that’s what I really like about it. Last year we did amazing projects for our university. This year we are doing even more projects. I cannot wait to see how they turn out. Fun fact:I am the reigning queen for the most service hours in our sorority. Maybe I will get this again this year!
CL: Where do you see yourself when you graduate from WVU?
ED: I see myself moving to the city and finding a job in journalism. I would really like to work in either a magazine or work for a website/blog. I really hope that I am still writing when I graduate. Overall, I want to be doing something that I love.
CL: If you could give anyone applying for colleges a piece of advice, what would it be?
ED: Take your time at looking at all your options. Always research different schools as well before you go and visit. Try not to settle too quickly on one school because you never know when you are going to find the college or university where you belong.
Here at CL we pride ourselves in interviewing classy co-eds at every type of university. We want to thank Erin Drummond for her time and her great responses! We wish you the best of luck with the rest of your time at WVU! Go mountaineers!
