UNO Junior, Miguel Alvarado, 22, sets his goals high for the future by double majoring in Public Relations and Graphic Design while also staying very involved on campus.
Alvarado grew up in California before moving to Nebraska at age 14 when his parents got new job opportunities in Omaha. He attended Omaha Bryan High School for four years and graduated in 2011. Alvarado chose the University of Nebraska Omaha because of it’s proximity and closeness to home. Currently he lives in Scott Court and loves being on campus.
Alvarado chose his majors because he has a passion for graphic design and wants to continue to grow in the field. He grows his skills in and outside of class by stepping up to be the Public Relations Chairman of his Fraternity, Sigma Lambda Beta, and managing all of their social media accounts and online relations with other chapters. He has big plans to get Sigma Lambda Beta’s name out on campus in the upcoming year.
“One of my biggest goals is to see our chapter grow and become more widely known,” says Alvarado, ” I would love to see a larger membership before I graduate.”
On campus he is also an active member of UNO’s Public Relations Club, PRSSA, the Latino Association, Spanish Club, and Ad Club. He plans to to study abroad in Costa Rica for a semester as well. Alvarado previously interned at the advertising company, Swanson-Russell, helping hospitals and farmers create advertisements. Currently he works as a sales person for U.S. Cellular and enjoys his job.
In his free time, Alvarado likes to “stroll” dance with fraternity brothers, visit UNO’s HPER facility with his friends, sleep, and play soccer. These have all been an important ways to relieve daily stress for him.
For the future, he plans to graduate UNO and move to Chicago to finish his masters degree in Advertising.
“Chicago is definitely my favorite city, I see myself living there after I graduate.” says Alvarado.
