Hi, everybody! My name is Lucas, and I'm a double German and Poetry major here at Pitt. I typically spend my days speed-walking and practicing my confusion with German. If you ask, I'll talk your ear off about my research in Europe this Summer and--of all things--playing cards. (I do play a mean game of Rummy, but Poker is, sadly, not in my wheelhouse.)
My name is Casey Taylor. I am majoring in marketing and also getting a certificate in digital media. This is my last semester here at Pitt after 9 long years of going to school. I have only been a full-time student for the last year and a half... before that I was a professional ballerina and only going to school part time at night. I am looking forward to this class and getting to work creatively in an outlet that is new to me. I am also currently working as a marketing coordinator and social media manager for Row House Cinema and Bierport in Lawrenceville - come check us out!!
Hi everyone, my name is Abby Hoffman and I am a senior here at the University of Pittsburgh. I am majoring in Communication Rhetoric, as well as getting certificates in Digital Media and Public/Professional Writing. I am from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, which is "outside of Philly". Last spring semester (2017) I studied abroad for 5 months in Madrid, which was truly a life-changing experience. During the summer I interned for a public relations firm in NYC, where I worked for and met many celebrity chefs (which was amazing because I love food!) I am constantly checking social media, especially Facebook and Instagram. I look forward to spending this semester learning how to compose digital media, which I-- along with many other people around the world-- consume everyday.
