What’s on TV tonight?

It’s been a very busy couple of months here at SUNY Oswego. In between being a Teaching Assistant, Communication Studies Lab Assistant, Underwriting and Editing Director at WTOP and taking 4 classes, life hasn’t decided to slow down for me.

I’ve taken on a lot of roles at SUNY Oswego, but I honestly love every single one. Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of my free time managing two departments at WTOP 10-TV the Student Run Television station on campus. For the past 3 years, WTOP has been my second home. I spend so much time there that I’ve often wondered why I did not have a bunk tucked secretly away in our storage closet.

A fact that only a few people know about me is that I had originally been admitted to SUNY Oswego as a Journalism major. I had planned on becoming a world-renowned journalist for Rolling Stone magazine. Instead, when I came up for my tour, I was shown the WTOP studio. It was love at first sight. I knew right then and there that I would HAVE to change my major to Broadcasting and Mass Communication. I wanted to learn everything about television and how stuff like that worked. With that being said, WTOP welcomes people from EVERY major with or without any experience!

I was not very active at WTOP my first year at Oswego. I had done a couple of technical positions for Live News, but it wasn’t until my second semester Sophomore year when I began to participate more. I had decided to expand past the world of News and into Live Sports and ultimately, Underwriting. Being super active in WTOP really helped me in the long run because when the time came, I had decided that I wanted to become a part of the WTOP Executive Board.  I got extremely lucky and became the Underwriting Director my Junior year. It was my first leadership position since High School and it was for something I was very passionate about. This year, I was able to maintain my position as Underwriting Director, but I also got to add Editing Director to the plate as well. It is a big job for one person, but I think it all appears to be swimming right along.

The other week I decided that I wanted to take some fun pictures at the studio. I was lucky enough to grab pictures of News and a Sports show known as Oswego Sports Update.

Thanks Al!

Hello Everyone,

It has been a wonderful start to my senior year and I am very excited about everything thus far. Classes are going great, there are many extra-curricular activities to get involved in, and there is also a new addition to residential life which we call the Village. The classes which interest me the most this semester are Compensation Management and Employment Law. The information I have learned in these classes are very beneficial in and outside of the classroom. I am also looking into possible law schools and trying to decide what area of law I would be most interested in pursuing. Employment Law has been on my mind of late and only time will tell if that is the path I want to take.

As far as extra-curricular activities go there are many meetings and programs conducted throughout the week by ALANA organizations. In just the short time we have been back to school there has been several successful programs on topics ranging from The History Of Labor Day, The History of The Young Lord’s, and social events such as the Triple A Block Party, and the ALANA soccer tournament. The brothers of the Sigma Omicron Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated and I also have some very informative and educational programs which we plan on having in the near future.

I am very excited to share my thoughts with you all, my reflections, information about campus events, and pretty much anything that crosses my mind. Hopefully this experience will be as great for you as it is for me. Feel free to say hello If you see me walking by in the campus center, in the residence hall, or If you happen to see me lifting my usual 950 pounds in the gym (yea right). Once again welcome to my domain, thank you for your time, and feel free to leave any comments.
