Initial Blog Post

My name is Megan Jackson and I was just recently switched into SC 200. I’m a freshman and I’m currently majoring in Advertising in the College of Communications. I’m from Katonah, New York, a small town about 45 minutes outside of New York City. I chose this course because I truly am interested in science, but when it comes to applying my knowledge and abilities, I seem to lose all focus. Science was never my strongest subject in high school, however, I enjoy learning about how our universe functions and how we play a part in it. One of my favorite books was actually written by Carl Sagan (The Demon-Haunted World)!

A fun fact about myself is that I was the co-founder of the American Sign Language Club at my high school, however, we nicknamed ourselves “Happy Hands,” after this scene from Napoleon Dynamite. I wouldn’t say that Napoleon Dynamite is my favorite movie, but there are definitely some funny moments that you can find me referencing. I’m also a huge fan of movies, and I try my best to watch at least one movie a day. However, I think this goal may change now that I’m in college. My two favorite movies are 2001: A Space Odyssey and Amélie!

I’m excited to apply what I learn from this class to other topics I may study in my four years at Penn State, and I’m excited to meet all of you!


(That’s me in the middle)

    That is really cool that you are majoring in advertising which is in the college of communication but started the American Sign Language Club which is another aspect of communications 🙂
