My name is Jamie Mathis and I am from Santa Barbara, California but grew up in Austin, Texas. I am an Advertising major minoring in General Business. I also have hopes in continuing my education further through grad school next year at Texas Tech. I have always had a desire to connect with other people in any way possible, and studying Media & Communications has helped me fuel this want. Mass communication careers have always been in my family and because of this, I am incredibly passionate with my areas of study.
I am currently involved in the Alpha Phi fraternity at Texas Tech as Director of Internal Programming, a member of multiple philanthropy committees within Alpha Phi, I play intramural sports, and I am big sis mentor. I have also been a member in the Greek Leadership program and a Greek Rho Gamma counselor. Along with Greek organizations, I am a member of multiple honor societies, many organizations within the College of Media & Communication, a member in organizations within the business school, and I volunteer regularly in the community of Lubbock.
I believe communication is key to how our world operates, so as an active member, former Secretary, and now Vice President of the Dean’s Student Council, I hope to communicate how important careers in Media & Communication are. Whether it is in Advertising or any other mass communication field, I think all Mass Communication majors contribute to the development and future of our world’s connectivity. I wish to see others realize this, and my goal is to make the Dean's Council a profound leader in this cause.
