It was my first time living away from home, so it was nice to have small classes that made it easy to meet new people. I liked that most of my career-focused classes had instructors who also work(ed) in the field, and they could bring relevant and current information to my education. I actually learned about careers in advertising while I was attending Sullivan. I began as a student in the Hotel and Restaurant Management program. We learned about marketing and advertising in one of my business management classes, and I knew right away that it was the right career for me. I went down to the registrar that day to change my major. Beyond that, the career placement folks were super helpful in preparing me for interviewing. They gave me a lot of advice and tips on what would set me apart as a candidate and look my professional best. Also, my instructors really embraced creativity in problem solving. They would encourage me to defend my work in business writing, and to think differently in design. ‘Safe’ wasn’t the way to get to the head of the class, and it isn’t in the real world, either.
