For our last Student Spotlight of the semester we’re featuring ADPR major, Haley Wineman who is graduating this Saturday! During Haley’s sophomore year of college she transferred to CoJMC. After studying business and marketing at UNO, she realized her love for creative problem-solving which led her to the J school.

Haley’s capstone project is Jacht Ad Lab that she describes as “unlike any other class in CoJMC because you get to work with real clients and experience agency life before graduating.” As the Director of Account Service, she’s learning more about managing clients and teams, and working with professors who have made a big impact on her life, like Jemalyn Griffin.

Haley’s advice for current students is to not be afraid to fail because that’s when you learn life’s most important lessons.
