In a post on the public relations blog "PR Week US," Jenny (Harris) Moede '87 makes the case that a liberal-arts degree serves those who wish to pursue a career in the public relations field. She writes "So although “communications or similar major preferred” may still be the default job requirement for PR jobs, I often find myself seeking out liberal arts grads, my kindred spirits, who have been encouraged to challenge, debate, and write persuasively. And as my daughter prepares for her first year at Carleton, I delight in knowing that anything, any career, is possible." Her daughter, Kelsey, plans to enroll at Carleton this fall and play golf for the Knights.
