I decided to take on a New Media Certificate at the end of my first year at uGA. I had recently switched into Grady as a public relations major and was taking a class that introduces students to all the college has to offer. One day in class we had a group of students from the New Media Institute talk to us about what a New Media Certificate is and why they decided to get one. One student said that she was truly horrible with technology, and she just wanted to get a little more versed in the world of computers. This is basically the same story I have, and I am proud to say that today I not only am confident when using my technology- I even know the names of all those crazy cords and how to code a website!
