Senior Sarah Stout from Denver, Colorado, majoring in integrated marketing communications with a management concentration and minors in sociology and marketing, is spending the fall semester as the marketing and public relations intern for the Iowa Events Center.
Sarah has used her communications and management courses to help her complete tasks for her internship. She is involved Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and this has prepared her to work in a fast paced marketing department.

In her writing for IMC course, she learned how to write public relations plan and that became one of her job duties at the Iowa Events Center.
