NOCA Feature Story of the Day:

      Congratulations to Our Graduating Senior

By Sarah Cooper  

As the spring semester comes to a close we say goodbye and congratulations to our Communication seniors that are graduating. As of Monday, the students of Dr. Mirando’s 498 Senior Thesis class presented their research papers at the 38th Triennial Senior Colloquium and defended them in front of family, friends, professors, alumni, and fellow students. Along with the relief and pride that comes with completing this feat, one student is chosen for the honor of Top Paper. Usually the award is given out during the ceremony prior to the students presenting, but due to some changes presentations were held on Monday and the pinning ceremony will be held this Thursday. Before the presentations began, the top 10 senior papers were announced. Allison Kristine Davis, a native of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, is among those chosen to be in the running for this impressive distinction.

When Allison became a part of the Communication department, she immediately felt comfortable with the challenging but rewarding work load. Her senior thesis was titled “Advising Approach Effectiveness: A Study of University Students’ Perception of Developmental and Prescriptive Advising”. Although she is relieved to finally be done with her undergraduate career, her hard work does not stop here. She has decided to come back in the fall to begin her Masters in Organizational Communication and is excited to see where this new chapter of her life brings her.

With such a strong work ethic and hunger for knowledge, Allison is destined for greatness. Allison says, “I could not have come this far in college and in life if not for the love and support of my mom and dad, they will forever be my biggest supporters”. As for any students getting prepared to take 498 this upcoming fall, Allison wants to lend them her biggest piece of advice: find your tribe. She says, “If it weren’t for my communication pals Neil, Mallorie and Julia for keeping my spirits up and being my personal cheerleaders. I could not have survived this past year without them”.
