I am so happy to introduce our new Department of Communication Studies Program Assistant, Christine Lee! If you are a current student, you will likely get to know Christine quite well when you visit our department office, Kalmanovitz 313. I asked Christine to share some information about herself with us…
Q: What is your educational background?
Christine: “I received my B.A. in Communications at UC Berkeley in 2010. I chose Communications for my degree because of its practicality and usefulness in the real world, most notably in my career interests, which includes education and advertising/marketing.”
Q: What did you do before coming to USF?
Christine: “Before working at USF, I worked as an office manager/principal’s assistant at a new public charter high school in San Francisco. Working in a start-up environment was a great learning experience (although I really don’t miss the 10+ hour work days).”
Q: What you like about USF so far?
Christine: “I love the hustle and bustle of the academic environment. All the staff, faculty, and students are kind and full of positive energy. It’s quite infectious and inspires me to work harder!”
Q: When is the office open and what can you help students with?
Christine: “The department office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5pm. The office may be closed from 12-1pm for lunch but please stop by to check! I am here to help you with just about anything, from scheduling appointments with the faculty to general information about the COMS department. If I don’t have the answer, I will try my best to find out (since I am also curious too). Don’t hesitate to visit the office! I am an open book and would love to share my college and real world experiences.”
Q: Any random facts about yourself that you don’t mind sharing?
Christine: “1. I live and breathe for FOOD. I am more than happy to share food recommendations (and impart your wisdom too!).
2. I am a huge fan of Kobe Bryant.
3. I am ashamed to admit this…but I don’t know how to drive (yet).”
How great is it that Christine was a communication major?! Please join me in welcoming Christine to our department and to USF! We are so happy to have you!
