VCU Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture

Assistant to the Director of Graduate Studies

August 2019 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

I liked seeing the administrative decisions being made at the Robertson school. I'm still in my undergrad, but being surrounded by professors who are restructuring the graduate program makes me lean more toward going to graduate school after I graduate.

What I wish was different

I wish I could work more hours and have more hands on experience, especially with something PR related (that's my major). I also would like to have more customer service experience, too. Being an assistant, I want to have some sort of face-to-face interaction with prospective graduate students, but I understand, right now is a bit too early for that to happen. (the school year doesn't start until the summer anyways)


Definitely do some outside research on the process of applying to grad school. Being an undergrad, it was confusing having to know the specific requirements to apply, such as the GRE or how many years of work experience does one need.
