. . . Gained invaluable professional experience in social media, graphic design, and marketing through my job at The Egg Student Creative Agency . . .

FULL QUOTE: Over the past four years, I’ve earned my degree in Media Communications and Advertising, lived with some amazing roommates I’ve known since the first week of freshman year, met some of my best friends through my sorority Pi Beta Phi, worked as the Photography Director and Layout Co-Director for UDress Magazine, and gained invaluable professional experience in social media, graphic design, and marketing through my job at The Egg Student Creative Agency/StUDent Events (shoutout Abby Phillips for being the best boss and mentor). While my last semester may not have been what I was expecting, I am so grateful to UD for everything it has given me during my time as a Blue Hen, and I will cherish it forever. 💙
