“…affected the nature of all my social media usage”

Major: Corporate Communication
Research title: “Facebook and the Hiring Process: What’s the Writing on Your Wall Tell Potential Employers?”

“There is something to be said about talking with employers who had turned down a candidate solely based on their social media profiles. This affected the nature of all my social media usage greatly. Students sometimes don’t understand that what they post impulsively, which is second nature to many young adults, may not be the most beneficial in the long run.”

“…discovering new information”

Research title: “In it For the Long Haul: An Exploration of Relational Maintenance Strategies in Intimate Relationships”

“Research projects allow for students to dream big and dive into an area they are most passionate about. For my research project concerning relational maintenance strategies, I had the opportunity to spend the entire course of my senior year studying and discovering new information about exactly what was most relevant in my life.”

“…discover their stories of adversity and community members’ stories of diversity”

Kevin Coriolan, Class of 2014

Hometown: Worthington, Minn.
Majors: Digital Media and Corporate Communication
Research title: “Our Culture: Our Stories”

“'Truth' is what I took away from the ‘Our Culture: Our Stories’ project. I learned through the partnership of BVU and the Storm Lake Middle School that stories are everywhere including the young lives of sixth graders. The journalistic project allowed me to work with sixth graders to discover their stories of adversity and community members’ stories of diversity. I’m now an avid advocate for the stories that are heard too little.”
