During her time as a Redhawk, Brittany Premick ’19 was a student leader on the La Roche University campus. A graduate of the marketing program, Ms. Premick headed the Residence Hall and Student Government Associations.
How did La Roche activities enhance your college experience?
I was the vice president and president of the Resident Hall Association. I also was the director of clubs and organizations before serving as president of the Student Government Association during my senior year. These roles helped my leadership skills immensely and taught me not to be afraid of taking charge. I also enjoyed being an orientation leader for three years.
How did you grow at La Roche?
Before coming to La Roche, I never believed I would become an orientation leader and a student leader on campus. These experiences helped me shape relationships with people I never thought I would, and they helped me to succeed in my academic career.
La Roche is a very welcoming community. From the moment you step on campus, someone is always there to help whether it be orientation leaders, faculty or staff—or even student leaders on campus.
Why did you choose La Roche?
I took credits through La Roche when I was in high school. After a campus visit, I realized that I loved the school and decided it was the place for me.
How did La Roche prepare you to enter the field of marketing?
La Roche’s marketing classes were very helpful and helped me prepare for what the real world puts in front of you. I now help The Tribune Review, Trib Total Media and 535 Media with any events they sponsor. This includes home shows, WPIAL events and social media marketing.
What is your favorite memory of being a La Roche student?
My time at La Roche is a favorite memory in itself, but also my study abroad trip to Europe, specifically to Budapest and Prague.
What is your advice for students?
Take advantage of what La Roche has to offer. Don’t be afraid to step up and be a leader on campus, and try to get to know the faculty and staff. They are there to help and support you.
