Claire McCabe, a sophomore from Pasadena, Md., majoring in advertising and public relations, already has left her mark at Lynn through her wide-reaching involvement.
McCabe came to Lynn for the weather, the location and the on-campus opportunities. When the Maryland native toured the university, she had the opportunity to speak with Gary Carlin, associate professor within the College of Communication and Design, who would ultimately solidify her college search process.
“When I found out Lynn had a student-run advertising agency on campus [from Professor Carlin], the decision to come to Boca was even easier,” said McCabe.
Her involvement at Lynn includes serving as the Auxiliary Knight in the Knights of the Roundtable (KOR), Lynn’s student government. In this role, she oversees student concerns on various facilities across campus.
“I love advocating for students’ wants and needs at the university,” said McCabe. “I am so honored to be working alongside some of the best people on campus.”
McCabe credits Lynn for bringing her not only new best friends, but also endless opportunities to gain leadership positions.
“Lynn has helped me step outside of my comfort zone while striving to strengthen my resume and enjoy the experience along the way,” she said.
While studying public relations, McCabe has found a home in Pulse Agency, the university’s student-run advertising agency on campus. She recently assumed a vital role for the program this past fall, revamping the public image of the organization.
“My ideal job after college would be working for a public relations agency,” said McCabe. “I love being able to work with people and enhancing the little things for each client I have the opportunity of working with.”
As just a sophomore at Lynn, McCabe hopes to continue her success in the classroom, on the roundtable and around campus during the next couple of years. She looks to continue exploring leadership possibilities in other departments as well, allowing her grow as both a leader and professional.
