Klariza Alvaran

Klariza came to college with a plan: graduate as quickly as possible and get a job. That all changed when she joined The Chronicle student newspaper and discovered a new passion in journalism. She took writing classes while working with the newspaper’s editorial staff and is serving as co-editor-in-chief.

Along the way, she added a major in interactive media studies (IMS) with a focus in convergent media.

“Any track in IMS is great, but I liked the journalism focus of the convergent track.” Klariza’s success in the IMS program has opened doors, including a summer internship for the U.S. Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs and in product management with a Fortune 100 company.

“I’m no longer in a rush to graduate - I’d rather foster the work I’ve been doing here. North Central is a great place to be.”
