What impact did the “Promotions” class have on you?

Promotions had a profound impact on me. It taught me incredible lessons of leadership, how to work on a team, and the importance of being passionate about the work you do. Promotions made me a lover of advertising and has completely changed my professional trajectory, in a great way. It is the best thing I did at UVA.

What is the most valuable thing you learned in this class?

I learned how to really work as a team by leaning on my teammates, trusting them, and honestly communicating with them.

Why should a UVA student take the “Promotions” class?

This class will change your life. Surrounded by the best group of people, you will solve complex challenges, you will make friends, and you will work with some of the most interesting clients. You’ll never have a more hands-on experience anywhere at UVA.

What is your favorite “Promotions” memory?

My favorite memory was when our school was announced at semifinals, announcing that we were going into the final round of the NSAC competition. The room was electric; it was the first time that representatives from Tinder evaluated our work!

What is the best part about being in the “Promotions” class?

The people are the best part of Promotions. The students are incredibly smart and creative, Carrie is inspiring and honest, and the alumni are supportive and incredibly talented. It’s an amazing family to be apart of.
