Electronic Media & Communications
My name is Jenabeth Gunter and I am a sophomore Electronic Media & Communications major minoring in Film and Media Studies. I grew up on a farm near a small, West Texas town called Olton, Texas.
Starting at a young age I have always been interested in anything media related. I enjoy photography, videography, sound recording and digital media. With all of these interests combined, studying Electronic Media and Communications was the greatest option for me to do what I love. I want to create visual/audio content that goes out for the world to see.
I am involved in a variety of organizations at Texas Tech. This includes Sigma Phi Lambda, Texas Tech Student Government Association, Tech Association of Student Electronic Media, Dean’s Student Council, National Residence Hall Honorary, National Society of Collegiate Scholars and Golden Key International Honour Society.
I am currently the Community Advisor for the Media and Communication Learning Community (MCLC). This position entitles me to plan programs related to the media and communication department that will benefit the students in the MCLC staying in the Wall/Gates Housing Complex.
I am the Media Director for the Texas Tech Student Government Association. I create all of the social media content and work closely with the public relations committee regarding marketing and promotions.
I am also in charge of digital content for other entities. I am the Social Media Coordinator for Wall/Gates Housing Complex and Tech Association of Student Electronic Media. I am also the Historian for Golden Key International Honour Society.
This summer I had the incredible opportunity to study abroad in Seville, Spain. This experience encouraged my desire to immerse new cultures. It also proved to me just how much media impacts the entire world through connectivity.
I plan to attend grad school at Texas Tech to receive my Master of Arts in Media and Communication. I believe that media connects the world around us in profound ways, and it is my desire to play an important role in it. It is my goal to someday create media that goes out to a mass audience so I can impact what they see and hear in positive ways.
