On Tuesday, January 5th, Otterbein Communication students went to the Blue Jackets game and were able to experience everything from a press conference to meeting with the PR and Broadcasting Heads.
We interviewed two senior broadcasting students who attended the game: Jayme Detweiler & Megan Wycuff!
What activities/organizations are you involved in at Otterbein?
MW: WOCC TV3 & Otterbein360
How were you able to attend the Blue Jackets game?
JD: Dan Steinberg’s class
MW: I attended the Blue Jackets game through one of my classes, Professional Development for Communication Careers (Comm 225) with Dan Steinberg
What was your experience at the game like?
JD: Amazing! It was so great to meet people in the broadcasting business and get their advice!!
MW: We visited a print writer, TV and radio announcers, and the PR professionals and they all took a brief break from working to explain what they do and to answer our questions. It was good to get into a game for free, but to see the work that goes on behind the scenes to make each event a success was the really great part about going.
What would you recommend to underclassmen?
JD: Take the Comm 225 class!! And also get involved
MW: Forming relationships with professors is really important because they have a lot of connections to opportunities that really make a college experience a good one!
