Communication Studies: Ellen Brandon, Sophomore

March 18, 2021

The thing I feel like is disappointing would just be in my classes’ professors talk so much about the importance of connections and building relationships, professionals, but I feel I haven’t really made connections with people, I haven’t really seen people. Hopefully when COVID is done I can actually be able to go meet people, talk to them, pick their brain, and form those connections they tell us are so important because it’s so hard to do through an email or on a Zoom call. I did pick up a sports communication minor because I really do love sports, so being able to go to sports events will be very exciting. 

I’m taking Argument and Advocacy, which is basically debating each other, and I feel like doing that on Zoom is a recipe for disaster. We haven’t had to do it yet, but as the semester goes on we’re going to have to for our final project, and I just don’t see how that’s going to work on Zoom. 

But you can’t change what’s going on. I like going in person because I feel the normalcy, but I’m also like, ‘Ugh, I have to get up and go to class.’ So it’s kind of like I’m never satisfied, it might just be me.
