"UWGB helped me acknowledge my passion for social media and turn it into a viable career path. [The Communication Program] is unique because I had all of these opportunities to work alongside staff and faculty to develop my skills and passions. I know this is what made me the social media professional that I am today. I work here, and when I am not at work, you can’t get me to shut up about how great UWGB is! I still need to pinch myself every once in a while."
