Peyton Schlossberg is majoring in journalism with an emphasis on strategic communication and minoring in film and media studies. He was born and raised in Manhattan Beach, California, and hopes to end up in the area after graduation. He currently gets involved on campus through philanthropy events with Sigma Phi Epsilon.
My decision to major in journalism was heavily influenced by my sister who graduated from KU in 2016. Being in the journalism program at KU was a huge accomplishment for her, and I look forward to it being the same for me.
In the future I hope to pursue a career in broadcast journalism or in film. I am best when working directly with people while out in society, capturing peoples’ everyday lives. These are things I would love to incorporate into my profession.
My favorite J-School class was JOUR210 - Introduction to Broadcast Journalism. I loved this class because Professor Butcher made it fun by giving us assignments that use creativity and hands-on material. We also had opportunities to work in the studio for Good Morning KU and sporting events.
When I graduate I will always remember the great building of Stauffer-Flint and the incredible professors and advisors it holds inside of it.
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the J-School is how much help the professors and advisors give to the students. They strive for our success, and it really makes you want to succeed not just for yourself but also for the J-school community.
My favorite way of spending my time on campus would definitely be in the Stauffer-Flint building. It has an all-around great feel to it, and I’m always comfortable there. Also, the vending machines are great.
My favorite saying is that “when you do good things, good things happen. When you do bad things, bad things happen.” This was told to my siblings and me by my dad since we were young. I live by this every day and will continue to do so.
