Experience: I always knew that I wanted to work with commercials, so the advertising major was perfect for me. I thought about graphic design but it was a little too artsy, and marketing was too mathematical for me. The advertising major was a perfect mix of creativity and strategy, and Iowa State was one of the only schools that offered that major. When I visited Iowa State and got a tour of Hamilton, I immediately knew that it was where I wanted to go!
