I never thought I’d be back in school. Well, I guess I’m not really in school—I’m at school. I started working for RIT’s University News team in October. I came from the Democrat and Chronicle, Rochester’s major metro newspaper, where I had worked as a copy editor since graduating from St. John Fisher College in 2007.
And now I’m back at school. And I love it. And I’m so grateful to be here, too. I had, and have, a lot of transitioning to do in both my personal and professional life. Public relations is very different, and strangely similar, to the news world. My former colleagues will joke that I’m a “traitor,” but they’re the ones who had to work on Christmas (the paper comes out every day, folks) while I spent the day in my pajamas.
So I invite you to tune in as I reflect on exactly what goes on in Brown Hall, aka Building 86, and how I’m adjusting to my new world at RIT.
