CoJMC Alumni, Eric Gerrard was an advertising and public relations major during his time at the J school. One of his favorite experiences was the summer he had an internship in Hawaii (that professor Nancy Mitchell helped him get!). Today Eric works with a lobbying firm in Lincoln called American Communications Group. He also has his own small law firm called Eric Gerrard LLC.
Eric can confirm that Mass Media Law (JOMC 486) is an extremely valuable course and one of the most relevant in the world of advertising. “Lobbying and advocating seems like a perfect mix of my advertising and legal background, so I feel very fortunate.”
When we ask our student spotlight’s if they’ve ever studied abroad, a lot of them will say they’ve been to places like London, Barcelona or Dublin. But Irwin Qi (second from left) gets to say that he’s currently on his study abroad trip while at UNL because he’s from Xi’an China.
Back home, Irwin’s major was New Media Studies and our Advertising and Public Relations major is very similar. Irwin also added on a Digital Humanities minor to really set himself apart from others in his major.
Irwin previously took an Interactive Design class with professor Adam Wagler and from that, he gets to work with Adam on a UCARE project focusing on UX Design in VR/AR. Sounds like a fun and busy semester, Irwin!
Almost four years ago when senior Advertising and Public Relations student Molly Meysenburg attended Red Letter Day, she was an undecided major. She ultimately decided to join the CoJMC Family because every person she met at the J school was so eager to tell her about the cutting edge work they were doing. She loved the enthusiasm and excitement CoJMC students showed for their courses and she wanted that feeling too!
This Fall, Molly is a social media strategist at Jacht, our student run ad agency. She's excited to work with real clients on some new projects. She's even more thrilled to be able to get know more of her classmates and make connections with people who love #ADPR as much as she does.
