Brittany Hargrove EOU communication studies alumni

“As a long-time Cove resident, I was so blessed to receive a big-city education within a 20-minute drive from my rural home! I don’t think Union County realizes how fortunate it is to have this gem of a university. The professors see students as individuals instead of numbers, and really work to hone each person’s potential. I am so thrilled to use my communication degree to better my community in my role as the Outreach Coordinator for a small nonprofit. Thanks to my education at EOU, I can now write grants, news articles and other written copy with ease. I can also plan complex events to inspire students to take an interest in science and rural health careers, assist regional high school instructors in the delivery of online health occupations curriculum, and so much more. Thanks Eastern!”
