Last week I and three other Communication students had the absolute pleasure of flying to Kansas City for the Central States Communication Association Conference. The Conference was such a great experience. It consisted of panel sessions with paper's being discussed on various topics, a Graduate Fair, a job fair, and a trip to the WWI museum. Did you know the national WWI museum was located in Kansas City? I had no idea! The whole trip was quite the experience. Our small group of students were in awe of the plane ride, the city, the conference, the food, and the people we met.
Have you ever been outside of the state? It's amazing to see other states and landscape, but there is something even better...the people! We saw and met people from all over. I sat next to a Russian transfer student who was studying communication via media outlets. Her and I talked briefly in between presentations. I was able to sit in on any panel that was interesting to me. Being a big media consumer, I decided to theme my weekend as MEDIA MANIA. I tried to attend every panel that had a topic centered around media and/or interpersonal relationships. The topics varied from Rebecca Black to sexting. All topics were well researched and presented. Being at the conference inspired me to further my research and my knowledge in the communication field.
Below are some pictures of the food we ate, the things we saw, and the places we went. Kansas City is such an amazing city. Everything was in walking distance, including the Power and Light District. The PLD was a huge outdoor bar/restaurant area. The place was very impressive!
So what, I missed my first serve. Point is theirs and the game goes on. I still have plenty of time to finish the game strong and make a difference in the game.
How was your last semester? Did you finish out great! Did you get the grades you working towards? Or did something come up; did life hit you hard? Regardless of how semester went, you got a chance to start over and try again! Use this new year as a starting over point. Make good choices, complete your assignments, stay on top, stay ahead, and most importantly, give 100% EFFORT.
No one can promise perfection. However, we can promise perfect effort!!
How was your break? Mine was crazy! So much snow, so much food, and so much family. I needed the break to get caught up in my social life as well as plan for my future. I hope you used your time wisely!
Because now it is back to the grind.
I’m a senior; therefore, it’s all about how I finish up this semester.
Wish me luck!
