Ashlee McDonnell wanted to double major in public relations and multimedia journalism. She transferred to Ohio Northern as a sophomore to be part of Ohio Northern’s strong communication programs and learn from professors with professional expertise. While the work has been challenging, Ashlee feels that ONU is where she is supposed to be.
She loves taking advantage of ONU’s professional organizations and internship opportunities and being involved in philanthropy through Greek life. And she values the varied friendships she has been able to nurture. It’s all part of her plan to build on her strong communication skills and find a career in public relations in the big city. “My professors at ONU helped me realize that I have the skills to have a job anywhere,” she says.
