My name is Danielle Stobb and I am the Resident Assistant for the JAMS LLC. JAMS stands for Journalism, Advertising and Media Studies. We are located in Sandburg North Tower, floor 24.
Last year I was a Resident Assistant in Sandburg West Tower. I’m excited to be involved the the JAMS community this year because I am a journalism major myself. This is my third and final year of undergrad. My focus areas are print/online and broadcast. I plan to attend graduate school for media studies (hopefully at UWM) next fall. Some fun things about me include: my graduating high school class had a mere 20 students, I have an adopted chihuahua named Tegan, I don't know how to swim, and I've visited Disney World 4 times.
My experience in the journalism sphere include:
- writing for the UWM Post
- reporter for Media Milwaukee (student news website)
- reporter for PantherVision (student broadcast)
- secretary for UWM Broadcast Club
- intern at FOX11 News in Green Bay
- media intern for docUWM, Milwaukee
- radio promos with Clear Channel Media, Milwaukee
My most rewarding moment (thus far) as a journalism student is my recent entry in the National Academy of Television Chicago/Midwest Broadcast Chapter. My piece, “UWM Superfan” has the potential to win a student emmy award. How exciting!
My listing of experience is not to brag, but to show JAMS students where they can be in a year or two. I hope my job as the JAMS LLC RA is not only to provide a fun and safe atmosphere in which to live, but to provide guidance and insight on UWM’s journalism program. Milwaukee sure has a great one!
The LLC residents and I have already jump started some fun experience by completing a social media scavenger hunt and attending the Fox 6 news station. We toured the newsroom, learning behind-the-scenes secrets to the daily newscasts. Upcoming events include: tours of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and ESPN Milwaukee, as well as hearing from local reporters as guest speakers in the LLC classroom.
I look forward to an exciting and educational year!
