Advertising student and recipient of the Conaway Andervertising Scholarship, Hunter McClure is studying abroad this semester in Australia. Hunter along with other College of Communication & Information students are participating in a semester-long experience spear-headed by Dr. Sam Swan. While there Hunter and his classmates are studying at the University of Sydney.
"Studying abroad this semester in Sydney, Australia, has changed my life. You go into it thinking that it's going to be a giant vacation, but in reality you are adapting and becoming part of the culture. It is honestly better than a vacation because you get the full experience and truly feel like you are a local. I find myself speaking with the lingo and helping people who are lost on the street. I especially have become keen on the laid-back lifestyle that the Aussies have. The environment is so unique and inviting that everyone should experience it." -Hunter McClure
For 24 years, students in the School of Advertising and Public Relations have journeyed to the Big Apple for one week during the month of January. This affordable trip sponsored by the UT Ad Club changes the lives of many students by exposing them to the dynamics of agency life in the advertising capital of the world. Led by two faculty members students get the opportunity to network with UT advertising alumni in NYC and spend three full days touring advertising agencies and media companies, while meeting with potential employers. From this trip a large number of students are successfully placed in paid internships in top agencies during the summer term. Outstanding UT advertising alumni work (and thrive) at agencies such as Young & Rubicam, Ogilvy & Mather, BBDO, Publicis, and Hearts & Sciences to name a few.
