Cam Hadley, a Public Relations and Advertising major with minors in New Media and Journalism, reflects on her time at Rowan.
Could you share your favorite moment with a faculty member or a favorite experience in one of your classes?
My favorite memory in class was participating in mock interviews with Professor Rodilico in Portfolio Prep! We got to be the interviewer and interviewees which really helped us get good practice. He gave me questions that he thought would stump me and was so proud I was able to answer them.
Could you share your favorite social memory?
My favorite social memory was working Hollybash each year with SUP. As the Vice President of SUP, I had so much fun being next to the artist who performed and interacting with students throughout the set.
What are your career aspirations?
I am looking to earn my Doctorate in Public Relations and then own a PR agency named JB Communications after my dad. I’d also love to become a professor after I retire because I can’t stop working!
How did the people or programs at Rowan help to support you with your professional growth or career aspirations?
I was able to learn about each aspect of PR and learn how to lead others to success. All of my involvement in SUP, SGA, PRSSA and PRaction helped me realize that you’re always working towards your team’s goal, not just a personal goal.
Do you want to give a thank-you shout-out to your family, friends, advisors or mentors?
I want to shout out Melissa Ulmer from SUP. She is the best advisor ever and always willing to hear us out!
Who is your favorite professor? What class did you take them for? And why is this person your favorite?
My favorite professor has to be Lou Rodilico, who I had for Advertising Copywriting and Portfolio Preparation. He is one of the funniest and most passionate professors who truly wants us to succeed.
What advice would you give to incoming freshmen or transfers about making the most out of their college experience?
I would say to get involved early and attend as many events as you can! Try to get involved in leadership positions as soon as possible. Climbing up those leadership ranks will lead to personal and professional growth.
