Hi all, I’m Sam Donnelly and I am a Communication and Social Interaction major with a minor in English here at SUNY Oswego. As a senior with a particular interest in media representation, the Social Media internship offered through the Communications and Marketing Department serves as an excellent opportunity to branch into some real world applications.
Upon entering my freshman year in Oswego, I had not declared a major. Luckily, I was drawn to a course titled Foundations of Communication and found my academic calling. The opportunity to learn more about how individuals perceive one another, in addition to how they perceive themselves, has proven to be an incredibly useful skill as I continue to explore my interest in the realm of identity and diversity. Naturally the declaration of my English minor came about from my desire to be articulate when discussing these often sensitive areas. On campus I am an active Volunteer with Students Helping Oz Peers, which is our Food pantry that is open to the SUNY Oswego Community. Additionally I am Vice President of the Communication honor society Lambda Pi Eta.
In my final semester, I am actively trying to utilize my time here to build upon my communication skills for future endeavors. In September following graduation I will be spending my time in Orlando Florida as a cast member in Walt Disney World, as part of the college program. Until then I’ll be enjoying my remaining adventures here in Oswego!
