With the jumpstart of the spring semester, students prepare for their variety of classes and time dedicated to the Seton Hall community.
Brooke Prunier, a senior public relations major, said she looks forward to finalizing all the hard work she has put into her degree these last few years.
“I am excited to take my new classes and finish up my degree,” Prunier said. “I am taking classes that I like this semester with professors that I’ve had before, so I know that this is going to be a good semester.”
Prunier said she has developed professional relationships with her professors and suggests that other students do the same.
“Students should get to know their professors within their classes and major because that will really help with the remainder of their time here,” she said.
Prunier said she is excited to learn from her sports public relations, international public relations and social media classes. She said the classes are making her “more excited to start working in public relations after graduation.”
Along with her public relations classes, Prunier said she is the president of the Public Relations Student Society of America chapter on campus.
“I really like working with the e-board and with Professor Lancioni for PRSSA,” she said. “I am excited to plan out events and hopefully get more students involved.”
Griffin Hirsch, a sophomore public relations major, said he is excited about advancing in his major.
“I am excited to get started in my public relations class with Professor McAdoo and my social media class with Professor Bollinger,” Hirsch said. “I like learning about PR and about media for different markets.”
Hirsch said he hopes to improve his writing and comprehension skills during the semester.
“I hope to become an overall better writer and get better at Spanish in my language classes,” Hirsch said.
Isabella Nicosia, a senior communications major, said her primary goal for the semester is to end with a 4.0 GPA.
“I want to try and get all A’s this semester so I can go out with a bang,” she said.
Nicosia said, along with academic success, she plans to participate in clubs and events on campus. She is a part of the executive board of Lambda Pi Eta, the Communications and the Arts Honor Society.
“This is my first time being on an e-board, so I am excited for that to get started,” she said.
As a senior, Nicosia said her courses are much easier than other semesters. She said she is “excited to have more time to be involved with clubs and the people on campus.”
Nicosia said that seniors who are graduating this year should “make the most of the semester” and to underclassmen, Nicosia said “keep going and keep trying your best.”
