Jorah McKinley

Communication, '15

With her Vermont roots and stemming from a small high school, Castleton’s campus was a major appeal to alumni communication major, Jorah McKinley.

“I find that it’s small enough that you develop a great network of close friends and a strong sense of community, but at the same time there are always new people to meet,” she said.

Having found comfort within the Castleton community, McKinley was able to thrive in the academic arena and develop her writing abilities in ways that will benefit her future endeavors.

“For me, the main draw of the writing minor is that I can develop my skills in so many different areas, from resumes to screenplays,” McKinley said. “I am able to pick and choose the classes that best complement my communication major and my interests.”

Although she is still exploring the options for her professional track after graduation, McKinley said she is confident in the knowledge and skills she will be able to contribute to any path she chooses.

“Because of the diverse skill set I am developing in my major and minor I know I will have options,” she said.
