Kate Lentz, Class of 2014
My first year at Ashland, Dr. Avtgis was the new director of the department and I didn't know what to expect. I came to Ashland as a Sports Communication and Journalism/Digital Media double major. I was the Vice President of the Sports Communication Club, then got handed the Presidential position in the end of my freshman year. I got the honor to sit in on interviews for the new Sports Communication professor, and this made me feel like I was important to the department and that my opinion matters to our program. I really like all of the professors, they all bring their own flavor and style to the department. I would never think of changing majors. Even if I don't get a job in the sports industry, I feel like graduating with a BA in Communication Studies will give me a great foundation for any career I could want.
