Screen Shot 2015-11-02 at 8.39.26 PMDuring my senior year at Virginia Tech, I served as the managing editor of Philologia, the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences’ undergraduate research journal.

As managing editor, I assisted the editor-in-chief and faculty supervisors in creating a marketing and public relations strategy to attract associate editors to volunteer to assist in editing the journal; to encourage students to submit research for publication; and to boost the profile of the journal among students.

In collaboration with the editor-in-chief and faculty leadership, I helped acquire research articles and creative work to highlight in the journal and locate art that mirrored the content featured in the journal. Further, we worked to assure that the journal was representative of the entire college, featuring submissions from the wide array of departments held within the CLAHS.
