Ashley Franso, Bachelor of Arts in Communication at Oakland University
After graduation, I would like to start working with a radio or television station and work in entertainment broadcast, in which I would write and report segments on upcoming or current artists… As a singer, I have always enjoyed music and would love to be able to obtain a job that allows me to incorporate my degree and my passion for music.
