Over the summer, junior advertising and public relations major, Lauren Tritch, worked in Minneapolis, MN as an account services intern at The Lacek Group. She had the opportunity to work with three high-profile clients while managing projects and working closely with her team members— she even had a visit from one of her favorite professors at the J school, Jemalyn Griffin!
Lauren is thankful to have a supportive mentor like Jemalyn in her corner, “She’s empowered me to be confident in a field that can be competitive and incites burnout easily. She’s also helped me discover my passion for strategic management roles.” Now, Lauren works for UNL’s University Communications as a project management intern where she’s an integral connector between clients and the internal team.
Lauren’s advice for CoJMC students is to never stop trying new things because you learn more about yourself. Join a club that you don’t know anyone in or go to a meeting for something you’re not even sure you’ll like!
A few weeks ago, CoJMC Professor Joe Starita attended the installation of a statue of Chief Standing Bear at the United States Capitol. It was an emotional ceremony and tears were shed by most everyone who attended. In this photo, Starita is standing in front of the statue with Judi gaiaskibos, executive director of Nebraska Commission on Indian Affiars. Starita is the author of one of the preeminent biographies of Standing Bear, “I Am a Man”: Chief Standing Bear’s Journey for Justice.
