Plattsburgh State University

Beginning in August 2001 till May 2007, Plattsburgh State University was my second College that I went to. At Plattsburgh State I started out by taking two courses a semester to see if I wanted to go into Communications or not. I found out that after two full years I really did want to go into Communications but I choose to be more specific by majoring in Mass Communications. When I change my major to Mass Communication I took what I had learned thru different Extra-Curricular Activities at Hartwick College and applied it to what I was learning at Plattsburgh State. Below is a listing of the different organizations that I was apart of at Plattsburgh State. Some of them are Extra- Curricular (outside of class) and some were Curricular (class).

Plattsburgh State Television

As a member of PSTV for 5 semesters, I came to meet a lot of great people and learned many tasks in a near to real environment. I will always remember all the times that I spent working on the different programs as I graduated from Plattsburgh State University in May 2007. The memories from PSTV will be the ones that I will remember the most as I continue my career in Television Production.

WARP

In Fall 2006, I enrolled in Broadcast Announcing Practicum (WARP). This was a two credit practicum offered every semester for students to work on their announcing skills. The majority of the time spent and most of the grade was based on how well you performed on WARP radio.

WARP broadcasts World Beat Music on the audio portion of Campus Channel 10, Charter Channel 17 for 6 hours a day 4 days a week. I took this course only one. I was a DJ for the African Music Hour every Tuesday at 1 PM. I learned more about proper announcing techniques and always to make sure to woodshed before going on air. WARP radio became a valuable experience. I have announced many different events and have DJ for several years. WARP radio also helped with television production because their are times that even a production major needs to do voiceover's for different programs.
