Hello everyone! My name is Anissa Teslow Cheek and I’m an intern in the office of Dean of Student Life for the fall term.
This is my last term as an undergraduate here at Oregon State University and I’m excited to be graduating at the end of this term. I will be receiving my degree in speech communications and hope to attend graduate school to continue my passion of learning how people communicate their cultural identities. My goal is to receive my MAIS at Oregon State Univeristy and to do that I have started my application process.
As an intern, this term I have been working on a video project that was started this past summer by two interns. If you read, Maria Garcia’s post you will already be familiar with the video project. For those that do not know, the video project was created to help students learn more about services on campus in a visually engaging format. Each video has a student host or hosts that describe the services available and are captioned. If you are interested in viewing the previously made videos you can at http://oregonstate.edu/deanofstudents/home/ or on the Dean of Student Life’s YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/user/StudentLifeOSU?feature=watch. In order for next term’s interns to seamlessly create more videos, I’ve been working on a how-to-guide that details the process from start to finish.
When I’m not working on internship projects or finishing up schoolwork you can find me hanging out with my partner Jason and our three cats. Fear not, however, I am not a crazy cat lady, just a cat mom. I would love to get a dog but it just hasn’t worked out yet. Meet my kids, Charlie, Jinx, & Belvedere.
I also enjoy hanging out with my brother-in-law, Tim and my sister-in-law, Kat who just transferred to OSU this term. If I’m not spending time with family I love to hang out with my best friend, Kim, when our schedules align. If we aren’t causing trouble, we enjoy watching Chopped on Food Network, chatting, creating or at least trying to create crafts, and overall just enjoying each others company.
I hope that this fall term has been a good one for you all and that you aren’t overly stressed with final projects and papers. Good luck with wrapping up the term and then enjoying your winter break!
