I conducted interviews with individuals working in social services and spent time touring Taipei cultural sites (temples, markets, tourist sites). I also spent time in Vietnam touring villages, Hanoi, and Halong Bay.
Seeing the cultural differences, sightseeing, and learning many new things.
This Field Period™ provided a great taste of a variety of communications aspects in a hospital setting, where you have to navigate an office environment, but also attend events and goings ons within the department. Students considering the PR or communications career path but not sure of how to go about it will be challenged. In addition, PR in the health care setting can be very different due to HIPPA and other privacy laws that a medical organization must take into account.
Going along on some of the media interviews was some of the best parts. I got to be in a radio studio while one of our physicians gave a talk about nutrition. I helped with the filming of several television newscasts and got to meet reporters, (great for networking!) The coolest thing was a media assignment one day where I got to scrub in and head to the OR with a news crew to observe a brain surgery!
I can speak for everyone in the admissions office that we are all looking forward to the summer weather! A little sunshine and warmer temperatures will do us all good.
We are excited to announce our summer visit days as July 9th, 21st,and 26th.
Although you may visit any day during the summer, these summer visit days are a lot of fun, and include a campus tours, interviews with admissions counselors, and financial aid informational sessions. We’ll also be serving up lunch right on Point Neamo (our private beach front area) for all guests. Our very own dean of admissions and marketing, Fred Hoyle, will be grilling up hot dogs and hamburgers, and as you can see, summer is a great time to visit Keuka College and enjoy all that our lakeside location has to offer!
To schedule your visit, please call 800-33-KEUKA. We look forward to seeing you this spring or summer!
