This is my second semester as a mass comm student and my fourth semester here at WT. I was previously a Nursing major, and have attended the University of Texas at Tyler, and the University of Mary Hardin - Baylor as a nursing major, as well as gotten many of my basics done at Tarrent County College in Fort Worth.
