Oh great! Are you about to finish high school or are you thinking about transferring?
Honestly, it took me awhile to make the decision but I think I made the right one in the end. At my current school, I wasn’t studying what I wanted to study and I wasn’t getting the resources and opportunities either. That’s when I started to research PR programs. I found Hofstra and started to look into it and its programs. It has a great PR program and with it being so close to the city, there are endless opportunities for internships and new experiences. Also, I love the fact that I’m not living in the city but still close enough for all the advantages. I get that homey feel and the city. Plus, it is a medium sized school, not too overwhelming and not too small. The school also has great extracurriculars specifically for PR. My current school doesn’t even have half of what Hofstra has! It all depends on what you are looking for with your academics and activities. The school has great connections to the city, which help students get internships. There are students at Hofstra who intern at the most prestigious companies.
I started to look for schools where I could actually study PR and then schools near a place where I could get internships. My other options where Chapman University, University of Southern California and Penn State. I chose Hofstra because each one of these universities had cons that made the school not worth going to. Penn State is way too big. USB is also big but I didn’t see as much opportunity here that was worth transferring for. Also, Hofstra is very open to transfer applications! They love to accept transfer students where most schools accept a very low amount.
Hope I helped somewhat! :)
Since it may be the last day of Ramadan, I wanted to discuss a major fashion moment of 2014. DKNY recently released a collection called DKNY Ramadan. Ramadan is the Holy Month for Muslims when they fast from sunrise to sunset. One of the main aspects of this religion is modesty. This collection is the first of its kind. DKNY is the first major fashion company to create clothing revolving around the views of Muslims. I thought this was pretty dang cool!
These pieces are so beautiful too! Putting together high fashion and modesty turned out to be out of this world. From long, flowing dresses to statement colors and prints, this collection could be for anyone really! To see fashion accepting other cultures and religions is going to do a lot for the fashion world. I’m excited to see what else is in store.
It’s unfortunate that this collection isn’t being sold in the US. I was planning to do MAJOR splurging!!
