Ashley Chapman, Communications (Public Relations)


shley Chapman


Hello! I am Ashley and I am a junior pursuing a degree in communications with a concentration in public relations and double minoring in journalism and photography. This past summer, I was blessed with the opportunity to experience the trip of a lifetime by studying abroad in Milan, Italy on the Italian Media, Society, and Culture program that is directed under the wonderful academic guidance of Dr. Wright. Throughout my time in Italy, I was able to gain skills through a variety of experiences that allowed me to develop my sense of identity by challenging myself and growing personally and academically as a result. I am excited to share my passion for study abroad with students and help guide other students in planning their own study abroad adventures.
