Alum Success

For me, everything started at Lake State. I got such a well-rounded communication background after spending four years as a student athlete at LSSU. I was able to work behind the scenes for our hockey and basketball programs, while also being an active member on campus. I even had the opportunity to practice journalism on a study abroad trip to Costa Rica with the Honors program. After I graduated, I decided to dive a little deeper into the field by pursuing a Masterís degree in Broadcast Journalism, specializing in Sports Reporting, at Boston University. I felt like I had developed such a strong base at LSSU, and as a result, while studying and working in Boston, I was able to really refine my skills and become more marketable. I am so grateful for the experiences I gained in this entire process. What I learned as a Laker got me into a top broadcast graduate program at Boston University. While in Boston I was able to cover a variety of incredible events: from the 2012 presidential election, to the Red Sox World Series title at Fenway Park, to the bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line. I landed my first full time journalism job at ABC 6 News in Rochester, Minnesota as a sports anchor and reporter. It requires an incredible amount of hard work and dedication, but it feels so awesome to say that I truly love what I do. Itís been such a ride, but I will never forget where it all started!

Attorney — Quite simply, attorneys practice law. What that means depends upon the legal (or non-legal) work environment that one ultimately chooses, along with the area(s) of law in which one practices. The opportunities are endless given the various work environments and the numerous areas of law in which one can specialize. For instance, lawyers practice within private law practices; public interest groups; governmental agencies (federal, state, tribal or local); courts; business and industry (e.g., insurance companies, financial institutions, corporations, hospitals, public relation firms, political campaigns, labor unions, and trade associations); academics (as a law professor, law librarian or administrator); or in various non-legal careers such as the media, law enforcement, business, public relations, foreign service, or politics. In addition, within many of these varied work environments, there are numerous areas of law in which one may specialize.

"I've been tracking adult sturgeon by radio telemetry in hopes of identifying their spawning areas." Besides his sturgeon hydrophone telemetry work at LSSU, Brandon has studied adult Atlantic salmon, radio-tracked an elk herd in Canada, and banded migrating owls at Whitefish Point. [ more ]
