Samantha Garrett on what inspired her to study print at Clemson

Published on May 7, 2010

Cary Sherburne:  Hi.  I'm Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here with Samantha Garrett who is an undergrad at Clemson in Graphic Communications.  Welcome. 

Samantha Garrett:  Thank you.

Cary Sherburne:  So, tell me sometimes people say, "Oh, printing isn't a very sexy kind of thing to get in to."  So what drew you to that versus maybe being a web designer or who knows what else?

Samantha Garrett:  In high school, I had a yearbook and I was really involved in that.  I had a teacher that was just amazing; I loved her.  So, I got into it because of that and then at Clemson it's so broad and I was kind of like is this what I really want to go into and I figured I could go to anything from marketing to advertising to printing.  So I felt like it was a good background to have.

Cary Sherburne:  So what high school did you go to?

Samantha Garrett:  I actually grew up in Clemson.  I went to a high school; it's about 10 minutes away in Pendleton.

Cary Sherburne:  And was the name of that teacher?  Let's give her some recognition.

Samantha Garrett:  Amanda Griffin.

Cary Sherburne:  Okay, great.

Samantha Garrett:  She was awesome.

Cary Sherburne: And how much longer do you have until you graduate?

Samantha Garrett:  I will graduate in approximately 70 some odd days.  I graduate in May.

Cary Sherburne:  In May of 2010?

Samantha Garrett:  Yeah.

Cary Sherburne:  And what do you want to do then?  You've got a lot of ****.

Samantha Garrett:  I really -- because of the fact that I really liked that running through an entire print job, I'd really like to work at a small print shop so I get to kind of see everything from beginning to end.

Cary Sherburne:  And do you want to stay in that area or do you care?

Samantha Garrett:  I've been looking at Charleston.  I did an internship there with Sawgrass Technologies in last fall and it was a lot of fun.  I like Charleston a lot.

Cary Sherburne:  Yeah, I bet.  So, again, if you -- after May 2010 we got some great talent here that people can contact WhatTheyThink and maybe we'll find you a job.

Samantha Garrett:  Yeah.

Cary Sherburne:  You never know.  Okay.  Thank you very much.

Samantha Garrett:  Thank you.
