SOC Ambassadors

School of Communication Student Ambassadors

The School of Communication Student Ambassadors, a select group dedicated to the positive promotion of Loyola University Chicago and specifically the School of Communication, are an essential component of SOC's public relations outreach.

The SOC Ambassadors are an important part of the success of our school and university community. Ambassadors serve as leaders to the school, as well as an important voice of our student body. Generally, Ambassadors attend School of Communication events to lend their talent and voice to ensure success. You'll find Ambassadors assisting with event logistics, promotion, and execution through the development of PR materials, encouraging fellow students to attend, emceeing, designing posters, social media outreach, etc. Students serve as a liaison to alumni and prospective students, relying on their knowledge and passion for the SOC to positively promote our school and programs.

Alissa Griffin

My name is Alissa Griffin, I am currently a sophomore broadcast journalism major and business minor. So far my time studying in the School of Communications has been enlightening, engaging, and exciting. I have learned more than I could have imagined, from how to create an effective blog to how to operate technology used for websites and broadcasts. I am involved in many extracurricular activities including writing for The Phoenix, being a member of my sorority, Alpha Sigma Alpha, working as an intern at Kids in Danger, and of course being a member of DSAC. All of these experiences have shaped my college experience thus far and I would highly encourage becoming involved in organizations similar to these.

I am still in the process of fully deciding my career goals. I have always wanted to go to law school and work in the family law field, but my interest in broadcast journalism has grown with the more classes I take. I have begun looking into jobs as a sports or newscaster as well as thought about law school. I am open to any and all questions about my experience with the SOC. My email address is agriffin2@luc.edu.

In addition to being an ambassador, I am currently the Residence Hall Association President and a member of Beta Rho, NSCS, CCAI, the Hunger Week Team, and a student worker in the IT Department. I am from Homewood, IL and chose to study in the School of Communications at Loyola University because of the strength of the program, the challenging curriculum, the expertise of the faculty, and the endless opportunities that Chicago offers!
