Ian Osinski, a recent SIU graduate with a major in Public Relations and a minor in Advertising, shares his reasons for pursuing a degree in the field of Public Relations.
Going to college was always a dream of mine. I couldn’t wait to one day get a degree and be able to throw my hat into the air and take on the world. Some students come to college with a blueprint of what they want to do, and they go after it. For me, I came to college tabula rasa. At first it was exciting to be uncommitted to a specific degree because I could do whatever I wanted. But eventually the realization started to sink in that I would have to declare a major.
