Digital Media Communication
Hi, my name is Karen Gerofsky and I am majoring in communication with an emphasis in digital communication and a minor in media writing. I'm from Ephrata, Pennsylvania, right in the heart of Amish country.
When I started looking at schools, academic programs were very important to me. Specifically, I was looking for colleges with good writing programs and photography, but the second I stepped foot on campus I knew that Lycoming College was the place for me! Fortunately, they also had a perfect program, Digital Comm, which ties together all of my interests.
The courses in my major have all been amazing. Daily, I'm forced to think outside the box and to think creatively. My future plan is to take the experiences I have gained in the classroom and apply them to an internship with the Reading Eagle daily newspaper. My eventual goal is to obtain a career in print media, perhaps as a layout editor of a national magazine.
International study and travel is strongly encouraged at Lycoming. This fall I will be studying at Regents College in London, England. I'm really excited to venture out and experience a different culture. Hopefully, I will bring back new ideas and techniques that will strengthen my future résumé.
In addition to academics, Lyco offers a great social experience. Because everybody lives on campus you'll have a chance to meet many new friends. Relationships with students and faculty are a way of life here. I've also been fortunate to hold several leadership roles through my participation in WRLC radio (91.7 FM), Alpha Xi Delta sorority, serving as an admissions tour guide, and managing the women's basketball team.
Come check us out. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
