Brand > Telling Our Story > College of Communication
DePaul is unlike any other university. We have an outstanding academic reputation supported by strong rankings and passionate faculty, a vibrant link to Chicago that we leverage throughout the academic experience, and responsible values infused into all we do. We call these core components our ‘Education, Environment and Ethos.’ They define who we are, and they are the pillars of our story. We're beginning a conversation here where we'll share some of our best stories and soon will be asking you to share yours.
Meet Diana Gutierrez, a DePaul student majoring in communications and media with a concentration in Latino studies and a minor in Spanish. Diana has been interning with ABC 7 Chicago since fall quarter. She works in the programming department for 190 North, where she does everything from research to identifying potential interviewees and even translating content into Spanish. “[My internship] has prepared me because I am able to observe how the real world actually works,” she told us. “I am working in real-time, sometimes even live on-air. I have been able to shoot some stand-ups with the ABC crew, which was intimidating at first, but ended up being the best experience ever because I learned so much about [myself] and my reporting style.”
Diana is a reminder that being at a university in the heart of a vibrant, global city provides the kind of hands-on experience that prepares our students to succeed in the real world. Have your own great internship story to share, or know someone who does? Click the link below.
