Alumni return to speak to freshmen

The freshmen class in the JSchool recently heard four alums speak about their careers. What they heard was simple: You are part of a tradition. Don’t blow it.

OK, their message was a little more nuanced, but in essence Cooper Jones (’00), Stephanie Busack (’05), Dan Farkas (’98) and Chelsea Hamilton (’06) told students in my J101 class that they have a responsibility to work hard, achieve and then give back. That’s the formula for making the JSchool a quality program.

I agree. Our newest students need to understand that they are part of a larger community. How they comport themselves in the classroom, in extra curricular activities, during internships, and on the job will go a long way in preserving the JSchool’s reputation. That reputation, in turn, will go a long way toward increasing the value of a BSJ from Ohio University. And that’s good for all of us.
