This Student Spotlight is on Kaitlyn Baase, a sophomore in our program, and our blog manager!
Why did you choose Ferris State PR?
I don’t really know how I came across PR as a major, but I’m really glad I did. The program here is so unlike the other schools I looked at. It’s really cool knowing that the PR program at Ferris is one of the best in the nation.
What has been your favorite memory so far in PR/PRSSA?
It’s hard to choose just one favorite memory. I’m going to have to go with the agency tour we took to Grand Rapids last winter. It helped me learn a lot about what I want to do with public relations. I also made tons of memories with my #prpeeps.
Are you involved in anything else on campus?
Outside of PRSSA, I’m on Ferris State’s cheerleading team. I’ve been on the team for a year and a half now and I really love it. I just got named captain a couple of weeks ago. Being a college athlete and a full-time student at the same time is something I am really proud of.
What is your dream job?
My dream job would be to do PR for a casino in Las Vegas. I want to go more into the event planning side of PR. I went to Vegas a couple of years ago and absolutely fell in love. It would be my dream to work at MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.
