            , B.A.

            What I loved about UofA was the independence of the School of Communication and its expertise. Other universities either put the majors in the Business School (marketing) or A&S (writing). UofA recognized, much earlier than most, the unique nature of Communications. Their focus on the disciplines involved created a level of expertise and a depth of knowledge that I found impossible to match.

            The quality of the training and positive inspiration at UA is top notch. As I write this I am sitting in NYC overlooking the former location of the twin towers with Wall Street just a few blocks away. My Bama education has helped me be prepared to work with the best of the best!
