Being an Advertising & Public Relations major allows me to get a well balanced education in two subjects that are directly related to one another. I have learned how to use photoshop and other adobe programs though my classes as well as learning the importance of the Public Relations industry. Combining the two majors into one was a great move on Lynn's part and it allows students graduating from our major to take up jobs that some applicants would not necessarily get because of one or two aspects of our curriculum. The professors in the Communications school are extremely helpful in anything and everything you may need. They advise you in which classes to take and help you find the right internship for you! It is great to be a name instead of a number or a face, we have the great opportunity to form relationships with the faculty within our school.

The benefits of being a member of a greek organization are great! There are always going to be people who love greek life and who hate greek life, but what it comes down to is weather or not greek life if right for the individual! Some people on campus make it pretty clear that they do not think Greek life makes sense or that they do not like the people. But, for our campus, the greek lettered organization do great things on and off of campus! Last year, as a whole greek life raised almost a thousand non perishable food items to the local food bank! Many of our campus' greek member also receive great awards at our annual award night called Knight of Honor!

There are a bunch of different places to go out and eat near Lynn. Mizner Park is full of restaurants like Yard House and Racks. While Mizner Park is a bit more expensive, there are other options like Macaroni Grill and Chilis by the mall as well. The small places that you find just from being in the area are great too! I love the small Greek places or small places by the beach! Being in the Boca Raton area is not the cheapest place, but there are tons of options if you are or are not on a budget.
