Favorite WVU Memory: My favorite memory would have to be my freshman year of high school when I managed to get a sideline pass for the second half of the Backyard Brawl. I was standing under the goal post when Tyler Bitancurt kicked the field goal that beat the then 8th-ranked Pitt Panthers and immediately rushed the field where I sang country roads on the mid-field logo arm-in-arm with the football team. It was pretty great, although I’d have to say my trip to the NCAA tournament games in Columbus last spring were pretty great, too. I traded tickets with an Oklahoma player’s family and got to sit behind the bench for the Maryland game and it was an incredible experience.
Favorite Food: Prime New York strip cooked medium-rare with skewered shrimp and roasted asparagus. 
On Friday Night You’ll Find Me…: Probably at The Back Door; my favorite local watering hole. 
What Do You Do In Your Spare Time: In my spare time I enjoy fishing, playing golf, cooking, traveling, spending time with my friends and family, open-range cattle roping, alchemy, listening to obscure musical artists, taking long walks on the beach, pizza parties, and hanging out at hotel bars.  
Describe Yourself In 3 Words: hard-working, loyal, outgoing  
Most Embarrassing Moment: I had to come in and pitch during an American Legion baseball game the summer after my sophomore year of high school. I couldn’t find the strike zone and only earned one out, gave up 6 runs and carried an ERA for the rest of the season of 127. 
Dream Vacation: My dream vacation is definitely a month long tour through Europe and ending in Dubai. I’ve never been out of country and I’d love to take a long trip overseas to experience different cultures, foods, and people. 
Plans After Graduation: While a lot of this hangs in the balance of finding a job, I would imagine I will be somewhere in Texas or Louisiana working in the oil and gas exploration and production industry. 
Fun Fact: I have lived in 7 states and been to 43 in total.

Hi ladies and gents, my name is Mel, Melanie if you're feelin' fancy. I'm a senior studying advertising, political science and fashion at West Virginia University. In addition to my studies, I am the Campus Correspondent for the WVU HC Chapter! You can hear me on the radio at U92 FM reporting the news and hosting morning shows. If I'm not there, I'm most likely at the local Panera eating my body weight in broccoli cheddar soup or writing about the daily, awkward encounters I experience. I represenative of the college of media as an ambassador and the prez of the magazine club. Oversized sweatshirts and jean on jean are my aesthetics. Lover, not a fighter unless you tell me Joe Jonas wasn't the best Jonas. Laters, baby.
  I grew up in Charleston, West Virginia. Growing up here I knew there was a possibility of going to West Virginia University my entire life. Although I decided to start my college career at the University of Kentucky, those country roads led me back to WVU in the spring of my sophomore year. This was also the point when I decided to establish myself as a Broadcast Journalist student. Since this point I have strived to become the best possible journalist I can be. I am currently working as a weekend reporter for WDTV-Channel 5 in Clarksburg, West Virginia. Prior to receiving this position, I worked as an intern with WCHS-tv/FOX11, in the summer of 2014, where I learned critical editing, interviewing, writing, and speaking skills. I worked closely with anchors, reporters, editors, directors, producers, and even the web team. Aside from the television industry, I am the Campus Correspondent for the West Virginia University Chapter of the online entertainment magazine, Her Campus. Another position I currently hold is the Social Media Chair of WVU’s Radio Television Digital News Association Chapter. In the Fall of 2012, I became a sister of the Alpha Phi Fraternity, in which I held the position of ‘Big Sister Chairman.’ My other passions include horse back riding, scuba diving, being outdoors, and running. I am very adventurous and I try to stay well rounded. My goal in life is to live life to the fullest and be the best possible version of myself. My ultimate goal would be to earn a spot as a reporter/anchor for Fox News, New York. I plan to graduate in December of 2016 and look forward to my future.
