Today I am going to talk about this school semester because it has been my best semester in college ever. This was my first semester as an advertising and public relations major and it was the best decision I have ever made changing my major to advertising and public relations. My first semester of college I was an architecture major that didn’t go so well at all and then after that I switched to engineering management which didn’t go so well at all either. I wasn’t doing while in any of my major classes because I didn’t understand the subjects at all. So, I knew I had to change my major. So, after doing tons of research I choose advertising and public relations and I am very happy I did. I have learned so much about social media, advertising, and public relations thanks to all my professors and I understood everything I was learning compared to when I was in architecture and engineering management because I enjoyed the subjects. And because I enjoy all my classes I love doing the homework’s and projects that I get assigned which sounds kinda weird to my friends because I like doing homework. In the beginning, the class I was most scared was advertising design concepts because in this class we needed to create our own advertising campaign and I didn’t know a lot about how to create a campaign in the beginning, so I was terrified. But as the semester went on I learned a lot about the process it takes to create an advertising campaign and when I got my first project which was to create advertising campaign on a brand. The brand I received was skechers and while doing this project it wasn’t just an annoying school assignment, I really enjoyed doing it. I was able to do whatever I wanted for it. I created my own concept and even took my own pictures which were a lot of fun taking. I even bought the shoes and had my friends wear them for the print ads. I worked so hard for that project, but I had a lot of fun doing it. And I even got a A for the project which I am so proud of. The other class I really enjoyed was this class because Professor Scheckel is one of the best professors I had at NYIT and his stories are the best and really funny and I learned a lot about blogging which will help me so much with my own blog and I learned a lot about social media and how to use it for a business. My main goal this semester after I changed my major was to not be lazy and improve my GPA and I have been keeping up with that goal. In my past semesters I would do everything the last minute however this semester I would start all my assignments as early as possible. And I believe my GPA will even improve as well. And other then school this semester I even had more time to spend with my amazing friends who have made this semester even more awesome.
