In most majors, excluding some of the arts, senior year curriculum includes a Capstone course. The Capstone’s purpose is to take everything you have learned in your major specific course and apply it to the real world. For me, this means I get to apply everything I’ve learned in Marketing to the real world. Needless to say, I’m excited.
As I’ve stated many a time, I am part of the board of WDOM 91.3FM Providence College Radio. Thus I decided that my project will be to take WDOM 91.3 and create a multimedia plan for the organization. I want to usher in a new era for the station. My first goal will be to implement strategies that will make it a competitor for other professional college stations (think of WBRU Brown University’s radio) and increase listeners. It makes me so happy that I can apply my major to something I love, the radio station.
But enough of the boring school stuff! Here’s a smorgasbord of what you’re missing right now if you are not a senior.
- Wait … Commencement is only 83 days away? THE PANIC IS SETTING IN.
- Job interviews. Lots of job interviews.
- COMMENCEMENT BALL … Now I need to buy another formal dress (I don’t mind).
- Does this mean I’m almost a legitimate person in society? I barely know how to do my taxes …
- IT’S ALMOST THE LAST SPRING BREAK (I will be in NJ interviewing for jobs. I live a crazy life, clearly.)
As you can see, being a senior includes a lot of realization that whatever you are doing is probably the last time you are going to be doing it. Yes, it’s bittersweet, but a lot of us are prepared for the real world. Providence College did that for us. They prepared us. Now the world doesn’t seem too scary.
Being a senior also includes a weird amount of self reflection. Looking back at my last four years, did I make the right decision choosing Marketing to major in? Did I make the right decision living in the buildings I did? Did I make the right decision living with the people I did? Did I make the right decision going to Providence College.
Yes, I did. Every decision I made was the right one and I am so thankful I have these years to look back on. They were amazing and I will continue to cherish every single one until PC has to literally pry me off of the campus after Commencement.
To the future underclassmen, good luck with college decisions! Ask yourself, in four years when I’m a senior, do I think I will have made the right decision? I know I did.
Have a great week!
