B.A., 2010, Communication/Film Studies

Hunter Cates earned his bachelor's degree in communication/film studies from TU in 2010. Today, he works as a copy writer for Brothers & Company in Tulsa where he writes advertising copy for big name clients in national campaigns such as Remington, Bushnell and Under Armour.

"My TU professors were committed to getting me into the professional world of advertising," Cates said. "Classwork was based on real world situations - often for a real client. Between that and my internship opportunities, I built a competitive portfolio while I was still a student."

Cates said it was a great feeling to cross the stage on graduation day knowing a job was waiting for him. Now as a professional in his respective industry, he appreciates the diverse education he received at TU.

"The diversity of my TU liberal arts education gave me an appreciation of many subjects," he said. "Today, that broad knowledge makes me better at my job."
