The triumphant day for Liam Breen has arrived. After four years of growth and memories at Coastal Carolina, he will move his mortarboard tassel from the right to the left. The commencement ceremony will be an exclamation mark on a TEAL-tastic experience that has the communication student from New Jersey reflecting on the place he called home the past several years.
“The school has changed so much since I have been here. We have put up so many new buildings, we have won a national championship, businesses are sprouting up everywhere,” Liam explains. “It has just been an amazing ride and it has been really enjoyable.”
The amazing ride has taken Liam far from the CCU campus. He studied abroad twice, once in Italy and once in the Czech Republic. Very complimentary about the abroad registration process and the actual experiences themselves, Liam is appreciative that Coastal allowed him to pursue his traveling interests. Don’t think that he plans to discontinue his visits to distant lands now that he is graduating.
“I really want to explore and traveling has always been a passion of mine,” Liam replies when asked about his future plans.
Specifically, he would like to explore Asia. Longing to venture out of his comfort zone, Liam wants to save up money for a backpacking expedition through the southeast portion of the continent. He hopes employment with a media ad agency will help him start stockpiling funds for the trip. Liam is fascinated and excited about the new technology available to advertise.
“What I think is really great about it is that people can make videos and monetize it all on their own,” Liam says about digital media advertising. “It’s quick, it’s fast and it reaches the target audience in real time.”
When Liam heard about his soon-to-be alma matter for the first time, CCU definitely hit its target audience. There is nothing quite like a student who loves his University and embraces the Feel the Teal mantra. We hope Liam enjoys his special day and wish him nothing but the best.
