Crazy Semester – Jake Hall – College of the Arts & NPACE


I have officially began my final semester as an undergraduate at CSU. I look forward to graduating and getting my communication degree, but it is also a strange feeling. I am about to go out into the real world and get a real job. Not the part time food service jobs that I have worked for the last ten years, but something that I can make a career out of and continue to grow under.

For my last semester I chose to intern at the NPACE because I want to get really good with the camera. I have been working hard at getting better with them, but I still feel that there is room for improvement. I start on tuesday working there.

That was going to be my only internship until Dr. Gibson emailed me about an opportunity to work for the College of the Arts as well the NPACE. I was skeptical at first, but after sitting down with Dr. McCollough and discussing it further I felt that it was a great opportunity. So I took on that job as well.

So far it has been great at the College of the Arts. I have been in discussions all week about getting advertisements for upcoming COA events placed in both the Ledger-Enquirer and Georgia Public Radio. My boss, Rex Whiddon, and I discussed other things that he will need my help on, and it looks like I will certainly have an entertaining and valuable final semester at CSU.
