I Went to Vegas For A Work Trip

Yes. I. Did. Every year the company I work for puts together a three-day conference for the properties' managers to go over important changes, announces, updates, etc. Well since my position is brand new to the company I became an update and was invited to attend to present my position and what I have planned...

The Art of Packing…and Unpacking

So I've recently moved from my apartment in Oregon to my mom's two-bedroom apartment in Colorado. Because I was prepared for the move (as graduation would end my time in Eugene), I began packing two weeks in advance. The little items that I knew I wouldn't need went into cardboard boxes and plastic tubs first.... Continue Reading →

The Art of Giving

Last Thursday the University of Oregon had its third annual #DucksGive event. As someone who works directly with Annual Giving for the university, this day is very special to me. It's also my third and final #DucksGive as a student fundraiser. I began as a student fundraiser my freshman year in the fall and this... Continue Reading →

Crash Course: Event Planning

Where... Continue Reading →

Winter Term, Status: Complete

I'm a little late on this post, but my last winter term at the University of Oregon is complete and the next, and final step, is spring term. Winter term was full of late nights and busy weekends. Classes were challenging, but then again they might have only seemed that way because senioritis has definitely... Continue Reading →

Pics or it Didn’t Happen

I recently wrote this post for my class PR blog and as an individual hoping to increase my social media presence and connection with the brands I use, I thought it deserved a post on this blog. Every adventure deserves to be documented.  “Pics or it didn’t happen” has become the mantra for the millennial... Continue Reading →

Working Well with Clientele

As my winter term is coming to an end, client work is in full go-mode. I wrote this post at the beginning of the term for my class blog #SOJCssm (Strategic Social Media). I wrote it because working with clients is a great experience for college PR students, but it's also challenging. A blog post from Shift... Continue Reading →

Stressing Through Senior Year

It's senior year of college. I'm stressed to the max. Surprising? Nope. According to the American Institute of Stress, eight out of ten college students are stressed on a daily basis. I can attest that is pretty accurate. Lately, I've been thinking about how stressful college life is. Finding a balance between class time, class work,... Continue Reading →
