Q: What are your plans after graduating?

I’m open for anything that has to do with being creative. I’m pretty open because there are not a whole lot of jobs in my field right now.

A: I would love to work at Nylon Magazine. It’s up in New York and it’s very competitive to get a job there, but it would be my dream job.

Q: What are your plans after graduating?

A: Basically freelance around for a year and then apply for grad schools (for film production), hopefully in New York. I might go to L.A. for a few months to try it out, but I want to end up in New York as opposed to L.A.

A: Writing and directing feature-length films.


Chelsea Rickey

Entrepreneurial Management major

Q: What’s your favorite memory from your time at the university?

Q: What are your plans after graduating?

A: I’m hoping to get a job, but right now with the economy it’s not looking so well. I plan on moving back home and living with my parents until I can find a job.
