Student Spotlight

Brittany Battista

"I'm getting hands-on experience early in my college career."

School and Major/Minor: Communications/Spanish


Activities On and Off Campus:
Social Media Manager/Executive Board Member of Zebra Communications, Social Media Manager of Wilkes World, Student Ambassador, Advertising Manager for the Beacon

Career Aspirations
: I would like to explore career possibilities and find one that suits me best and that I enjoy.

Most Worthwhile Leadership Experience:
 As a first generation college student, it’s setting an example for my sister and my family. My sister has such an interest in school now  that she sees how happy I am. That’s motivation for me in everything that I do.

Best thing about being a student at Wilkes University:
The ability to get involved. As a sophomore, I have a chance to write press releases and get involved immediately. I’m getting hands-on experience early in my college career.

It’s easy for me to do a lot of things because I have a lot of support from my peers and my teachers. If I need help with anything, I’d have it 110%.

Why Wilkes:
I didn’t know where I was going to go when I was in High School. I took a tour and fell in love with everything. It had very welcoming feelings. I felt like I fit in immediately.

It had a good communications program. The faculty was so nice and I didn’t feel like I was a number - plus I loved that there are so many opportunities to get involved.
