Gloria Gulenga, Advice to Prospective Students

Why Miami?

I loved the campus and the student involvement. I could see myself making lots of new friends and connections with both the students and the professors. I thought it was a great place to focus on my studies and form professional relationships as well.


How did you choose your major?

I came in last year (freshman) as a STC major, but uncovered my love for media and film editing along the way. I have always loved the aesthetic end of media and have always wanted to be on a production and editing team for movies, tv shows, etc. This really solidified when I took MJF 146 (intro to film) Spring 2023 semester and I have loved it ever since and I can see myself continuing throughout college.


Key Moment at Miami

As I previously mentioned, my class MJF 146 helped me find what I really wanted to do. Professor Alexandra Marsh encouraged my skills as both a leader and film editor in this class and guided me to finding my passion as a MAC and Film co-major.


Other Memorable Miami Moment

I didn’t end up joining clubs last year (my freshman year) because I wasn’t sure how, but this year I can see the UP and PIXEL Magazine organizations being a huge positive influence on my Miami experience. It has been so far.


Advice to Prospective Students

That I love it! I love the campus and all of the public spaces. Especially Armstrong because of all of the study spaces and because I always spend a big chunk of my day in there either studying, catching up with friends, or just grabbing a meal. I also love the film building (Williams) but that might just be a film major thing haha.
