Today, we speak with Justin Borelli, a senior advertising major from Malaga, NJ (Gloucester County) who lives off campus. Borelli will share his #PROFspective with us on what it’s like to be a Rowan University student majoring in advertising and what inspired him to choose that major.

Name: Justin Borelli
Year: Senior
Major: Advertising, within the College of Communication & Creative Arts
Minors: Public Relations
Hometown: Malaga, NJ (Gloucester County)
Transfer student? Yes
Where do you live? Off-campus

What inspired you to choose your major? I knew I wanted to do something with business, but I liked more of the creative side of business, so I chose advertising. I realized a lot of people in advertising actually want to do behind-the-scenes stuff like research, but I want to do the design stuff, and that’s what drew me into it.

What would you share with a future student interested in your major? All the classes relate to one another and you’re like ‘oh I’m actually learning.’ Justin taking a picture.

How does your field impact the world? Everyone needs ads for their business. I feel like there will always be a job for me to do.

What impact would you like to have on the world in your field? A goal of mine would be to see an ad that I did myself on a big billboard in the city.  

Describe for us an experience you’ve shared with a Rowan professor in which you felt like you were working with a visionary in your field: Cristin Kastner Farney was my professor and she talks about her world experiences in class. She’ll go through slides and say, ‘This applies to the real world’ I feel like she’s really helpful and realistic in that aspect.
