What was your course in college and why did you choose it?

marla.jpg Interdisciplinary Studies. This course allowed us to customize our learning, and I chose to focus on Psychology and Education because I've always been interested in working with young people. —Marla, Deputy Editor in Chief
steph.jpg I chose Communication Arts because I thought I wanted to be a writer. Haha! —Steph, Art Director
mimi.jpg I took up AB Communication Arts in college. I actually applied for different courses in various universities, but when I read the courses offered by Ateneo in their application form, Comm Arts seemed like a lot of fun (and I was right!). —Mimi, Managing Editor
angel.jpg My course was BS Communications Technology Management. I chose it because it gave me a good mix of creative and practical skills and exposed me to the fields of Communication, Computer Science, and Management. :) —Angel, Associate Features Editor
I studied Fashion Communication and Fashion Marketing in Singapore. I was curious to learn how the industry worked from different points of view—from how to put together a magazine to how to run a fashion business. —Sam, Associate Fashion Editor

I remember showing my mom and dad the course catalogue and they told me I should probably major in Communication. It was decided! A huge chunk of my education was about preparing to be a writer and journalist. That was definitely a great training ground on how to be thorough and articulate, whatever the field. Looking back, I would've wanted to double-major in Philosophy or French! —Jed, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

dyan.jpg I studied Journalism at UP Diliman. It was my friend who was hell-bent on getting into UP and I just tagged along, not expecting anything because it was, well, UP. I wrote for our high school newspaper, but I didn't think I could have a future in writing. But surprise, surprise, I got in! Thank you, reckless 15-year-old me. Dyan, Assistant Entertainment Editor
macy.jpg I took up Speech Communication in UP Diliman. I actually had no idea what it was at first (I originally applied for Journalism, but didn't make it to the quota), but after four years, I was glad I stayed. I learned how to be more comfortable in voicing out my opinion, grew to be more creative (we had fun oral interpretation classes), and got to try lots of interesting things (like produce my own radio show for class!). —Macy, Web Managing Editor
