Accolades for Buffalo State Journalism Major
Congratulations are due to Communication major Sade McKenzie (Journalism '14), who will be named one of 2 recipients of the competitive USG (United Student Government) Future Leadership Scholarship, carrying an award of $1,000.
Already a McNair Scholar at Buffalo State (mentored by Communication faculty member, Professor Meg Knowles), Sade has also been recently accepted into the Graduate Summer Undergraduate Mentoring program (GSUM) at the University of Cincinnati, where she will spend 10 weeks assisting a graduate student with research on the ways marketing and advertising affect our decisions. The GSUM research will compliment McKenzie's McNair project, which focuses on college students' use of social media as they prepare for the job market.
