Student Testimonials

“I wanted to thank you for a great term. As I said in my portfolio review, your teaching style and grading was very helpful to me and pushed me to become a better writer. I brought the hard copy of our [PR] portfolio assignment to an interview last week, and my interviewer was very impressed with the wide range of assignments I completed in your class. I was hired for a summer internship!”
– McKenzie, undergraduate student, Strategic PR Communication (J452)

“Thank you, Wendy! Thanks to your course my resume was perfected and revamped. I now have a social media and marketing internship for a local food company.”
– Jane, undergraduate student, Strategic PR Communication (J452)

“I’ve found that after going through informational interviews at Edelman, Weber Shandwick and CMD that [these types of firms] LOVE the personal brand and to my surprise they LOVE the blogs! I had two executives at Weber Shandwick tell me it makes all the difference when applicants enter their office with full blogs that showcase their different writing styles. So thank you Wendy for guiding me through the blogging and personal branding process.”
– Kylee, undergraduate student & recent UO-SOJC graduate, Strategic PR Communication (J452)

“I feel your class not only was able to broaden my skills, but [also] my view. I can pick out a press release at work [for the U.S. Federal Government] and realize the research and consideration put into it. I am also ahead of the game at work due to your introduction to infographics and social media. I can write beginner press releases and fact sheets. I feel confident in the skills and knowledge I have obtained. I really appreciate the fluidity of the class…theory was woven into the class, but you were quickly able to identify [opportunities for projects that build toward] our future careers. Being an older student, I hadn’t realized the importance of Twitter, LinkedIn and other media outlets. Thank you for the great feedback and professionalism. I am sure I will use these skills for years to come.
– Annette, Adult Degree Program student, Foundations of Public Relations (COMM 270)

“The entire class was beneficial, but I especially liked the part of the class where we had to put videos on[line] so we could have chats about them in small groups.”
– Katrina, undergraduate student, Intercultural Communication (COMM 220)

“The most beneficial aspects of the class were the debrief/class discussion time.”  
– Isaiah, undergraduate student, Intercultural Communication (COMM 220)

“I enjoyed the discussions and some of the guest speakers. They brought the text book alive and caused me to think critically. I discovered how to be better aware of the people around me. I benefited from the discussions, because I know more firmly what I believe and why I believe it.”
Kayla, undergraduate student, Intercultural Communication (COMM 220)

“The overall content of the class was very helpful to me as it provided a tremendous amount of insight in dealing with people of different cultures.”
– Jennifer, Adult Degree Program student, Intercultural Communication (COMM 220)

“It gave me an insight of how to react in intercultural situations and how to communicate effectively with others who are and are not in my own culture.”
– Sherry, Adult Degree Program student, Intercultural Communication (COMM 220)

“This class filled me with good information to further my communication with all walks of life. Loved it.”
