Communication major Jaclyn Holmes spent a semester in Australia as part of the CCCU Best Semester program that she describes as life-changing. On campus, she was involved in the Bethel College Honors Program, the Billy Kirk Leadership Program, the “Bethel Beacon,” and also played lacrosse her freshman year. She held internships with Marketing and Communications and Admissions on campus, and is currently doing a fieldwork experience with THOR Industries in Elkhart, working in their LEAP (Learn, Engage, Achieve, Perform) program. After graduation, she plans to combine her interest in social media with her passion for people by working in a social media position.
“[Spending a semester in Australia] changed my perspective on the world and ignited a passion in me for world issues, community, and my place in it all.”
