My name is Alex Urban and I am a graduate student at the University of Georgia. I am studying public relations at the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication. In May of 2011, I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in political science and a minor in communications.
Writing has always been a passion of mine; I was the editor of my high school paper, I wrote for Clemson’s paper for four years and was the editor of the Opinions section for a year. I currently contribute to an online college newspaper, nextgenjournal.com and am a columnist for The Red and Black, UGA’s school paper. My other big passion is sports, especially golf. I played golf in high school and currently hold a sub-10 handicap. I have experience working in the golf industry and hope to make it my career some day.
I feel that when you mix passion with your job, you are more likely to be successful.
