"My time in the Department of Communication at Saint Xavier was a special time to me. These past four years have developed me into a more educated student and have prepared me for the future. The small class sizes allowed me to have more one-on-one time with the professors. I spent a lot of time creating both audio and video projects such as podcasts and mini documentaries."
