Student of the Semester: Meet Miles Sherman
1) Why did
you decide to declare the minor?
When deciding which minor I was going to declare I
took a few things into consideration. I

2) Why would you recommend the minor to your friends?
I would recommend this minor to anyone that would
like to sharpen their skills in more than one area. I was able to combine my Journalism/
Communications major with supporting classes such as ethics and graphic
design. I think it is a great minor to
further your knowledge in your current major.
3) What's been your favorite class thus far?
So far my favorite class has been Graphic Design
I; it is an entry-level class that lets the student explore their talents and

new skills each day with Graphic Design and hope to take all of my tools to my
