Taylar Freitag

President

Major: Ad/PR

Taylar originally planned to study journalism when a family friend told her about how great the advertising and public relations programs were at UCF. She decided to take an intro class her first semester and fell in love with the profession. What she enjoys most about public relations is that the profession is needed for all industries and PR professionals have the resources to make real change in the world.

After graduation, Taylar hopes to work for government or for an organization that works closely with the government. Ideally, her role would be heavily focused on corporate social responsibility.
