Okay, so all of you who read my blog consistently know that I’m a Communication Studies Major, more specifically Public Relations emphasis. Well, if you’ve ever interacted with us Cal State LA majors and you’re from a different major you know we mean business. Let me explain this a little bit…
There are three main emphases here at Cal State LA: Public Relational and Organizational Communication, Social Change and Rhetoric and Interpersonal Communication Language/ Social Interaction. There was one more emphasis but it isn’t offered anymore. Now, if you interact with us on a regular, you know that [from my experience] PRs are insane. They are outgoing and fun, they talk wayyyy too much, they can keep up with several conversations at once and we are the biggest emphasis. The Rhetoricals are crazy smart, they will literally analyze the crap out of whatever you’re saying and throw it back in your face. I’m kind of jealous. The Interpersonals are the sweetest. They truly care about you at all times, how you’re feeling, how you’re doing, they’re like the best friends to have.
I’ve heard people say, “how can you keep up with so many conversations? How do you guys even pay attention to each other if you’re all talking over each other?” Well, it’s a gift. Duh. Seriously. Unless you’re one of us you have no idea how awesome we are. We are intimidating to the outsider, but overall, we are the coolest people around.
So, we have the coolest classes, the most amazing professors [I have to write a blog post for my Capstone class!] and the greatest students. We all truly care about each other. It’s insane. One of my besties Jami, says “we just have so much love for each other.” It’s so true. You’re having problems in your love life? Don’t worry, between all of us we will figure it out by the end of the day. You don’t get something in one of your classes? Chances are there are about 6 people around you that have either taken that class or actually understand what’s going on, and they’ll explain everything to you. Need somewhere to live? Don’t fret, we got you. Whether you’re stressing about homework and papers or wanting to go out and get crazy, we’ve got you.
I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy. Friends, I just want to thank you so so so much. I seriously love you. Like, a lot. I know I get crazy and loud, but thank you for putting up with the loudness. You guys are seriously the best. I just, can’t even. I’m gonna cry! I’m so happy I joined Lambda Pi Eta, Cinematic Visions and Golden Eagle Radio. With out you guys in my life, I could have never been this happy.
