5 Benefits Of Being A Manship Student At LSU

Joining the Manship School of Mass Communication has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. Here's why you should join, too.

You're fully supported by the one-of-a-kind faculty.


I cannot say enough good things about the professors and faculty that are involved with MC. From the moment I first walked in as a terrified freshman, I was welcomed with open arms. The teachers are incredibly wise and experienced, and their passion for the subject makes the classes so much more worthwhile. I especially want to shout out my advisor, Courtni Guidry. This woman is an angel walking on Earth, and you should be so grateful as to get the chance to meet her. This woman helps you with every single little thing you need and makes you feel special the moment you walk in her office. If nothing else, join Manship because they make you feel like family (and we are).

You gain real-world experiences from the moment you walk through the door.

This spring semester, Manship students had the chance to attend the SXSW conference series in Austin, Texas. One of the nights, I was lucky enough to attend the CNN Presidential Town Hall sessions.

The mass communication field can be a daunting one to dip your toes into. Manship makes it not-so-scary and helps you get involved with one of the four concentrations: public relations, political communication, digital advertising or journalism.

You actually get assigned engaging classwork.

Yeah, Manship makes sure the classes are worthwhile. The MC classes I've taken are some of my favorite ones since I've been in school. They actually prepare you for your life after college and help you find talents you never knew you had.

You are fully prepared to start working towards your career.

Manship is constantly holding networking events, resume workshops, leadership activities, and every other type of meeting you can think of — for the sole purpose of networking students for the industry they want to be in. They aim to make sure you're fully immersed in the world of communication, which I can really appreciate as a clueless college student.

You get to work with some of the best people in the world.

Some of my best friends in the entire world are other students I met through Manship. Not only are these people brilliant and driven, but they always relate to me and are ready to help me whenever I need it. Thank you, Manship, for bringing these people into my life.

P.S. This also applies to professors and faculty!!!

Thank you for everything, Manship. I don't know what I'm going to do without you once I graduate.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
