Humans Of COM Studies: River Bondurant

Being a COM major, I have really gotten involved on campus. Freshman year I began working with TealTV; UNCW’s student-run television production network. I started working with studio crew and have worked my way up to Vice President of the organization.
With connections from the Communication Studies Department, I recently got involved with the Office of University Relations, and I now work as a student photographer for the school. 
 
I originally came here for film, as do a lot of people, but as we know the film industry in Wilmington isn’t as prevalent as it used to be. Given those circumstances, I chose COM as it seemed to consist of similar, more applicable career options. 
I began taking classes working towards my degree freshman year when I took Dr. Weber’s COM 105 class in the spring of 2015. At first, I was terrified of the large class size, but I sat in the front row anyway. I worked really hard in that class and not to brag, but I ended up with the highest grade in that class, quite an accomplishment for a freshman! That class was when I fell in love with Communication Studies, and knew I was exactly in the right major.
 
Now, as a Junior, I focus on video production and photography taking courses like field video and studio production. I can’t wait to see where these great experiences with Communication Studies will take me in the future.

One thought on “Humans Of COM Studies: River Bondurant

  1. How weird of me to comment on a blog post about myself…
    I just want to say I am so thrilled that the IMC blog is featuring Humans of COM Studies! I attended Brandon Stanton’s lecture last Tuesday (and actually got to meet him, how cool)! I was so inspired by his lecture and the story of how HONY came to be what it is today. It was also very interesting how a lot of what he said ties back to IMC. For example, how he re-branded HONY three times! From being strictly photos, to photos with text, and then videos.
    I cannot wait to see what other humans from COM Studies will be featured on the blog!
