UVA's Department of Media Studies analyzes media culture, technology, labor, literacy, policy, infrastructure, and inequity. Our goal is to provide students with the tools to evaluate and shape media. With global reach, our faculty and students examine media from a variety of perspectives that include media history, aesthetics and form, audience analysis, media uses, the impact of media on public opinion, and the relations between media and the law.

It was the first day of classes first year and I was riding my bike by Clark. I was struggling to make it up the hill and two fourth years started watching me and cheering me on. I couldn't do it and had to get off the bike completely mortified. While super embarrasing, it's a hilarious story -- It was a welcome into college that reminded me to try new things and not be afraid to laugh at myself.

The People: My roommates, hall mates, apartment mates, friends, teammates on Club Swim, professors, and all of the great people I have formed lasting relationships with during my time at UVA. I have met my best friends here.

The Places: Scott Stadium, JPJ, the AFC, O-Hill Dining Hall, The Lawn, Lambeth Field, the Corner, and of course Metcalf 1R are among many of the places that will always be special to me.

Proud to be graduating from UVA with a double major in Statistics and Media Studies at the age of 18! Of all my memories, I felt my absolute best during coffee-fueled, all-day paper writing sessions at the block tables in Newcomb Starbucks.

My favorite UVA memories are running with President Ryan and the UVA running club and being at the Final Four watching the Hoos win the National Championship.

I decided to take Speaking in Public in the fall of 2018 to fulfill my practice of media requirement. I hated public speaking so I figured it was a good change to try and change that, or at the very least get better at it. Looking back, it definitely made the top three for my favorite classes at UVA. Not only did I end up getting much better at public speaking, I actually like it now. As the very shy person I am, I never in a million years imagined myself saying that. I can't thank Colleen Kelly enough for making that class what it became for me!
