Angela Weimer, '08
Angela Weimer, ’08, was a Journalism and Speech Communication major from Brook Park, Ohio. She chose Muskingum because of the uniqueness of the journalism program, which allowed students to “thoroughly learn and develop skills in three mediums: print, TV and radio. The program offers foundational theories as well as practical application for how a journalist can build a career by having a well-rounded skill set and an understanding of how these mediums converge in the workplace.”
Angela now works at Cleveland State University as the Coordinator for Outreach and Business Centers. She plans and markets continuing education courses in business and IT.
Weimer feels she was well-prepared by Muskingum for graduate school and the working world beyond. “Muskingum helped me develop the critical thinking and leadership skills I needed to be successful in the working world and graduate school. I have been selected for internships and jobs because my skills extend beyond the classroom. I fostered design, video, writing and editing skills while students from other schools are limited to one concentration. I studied Communications Management in graduate school and felt very prepared for the course work.”
In addition to her classroom educational experiences, Weimer adds, “I am most thankful for my awesome group of Muskie friends that encouraged me and helped me grow during my time at Muskingum. I am even more thankful that the friendships continue today.”
