Sarah Kaelas

Class of 2015

Sarah graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies in 2015 and then attended Cambrian College the next year to obtain her Graduate Certificate in Public Relations.


She has enjoyed an already busy career as a communications professional working with the Union of Ontario Indians in North Bay, the Corporate Communications department at Health Sciences North, and now she is a full-time Multi-Media Marketing Specialist with the Greater Sudbury Police Service.


“If I could summarize what I learned during my four years at Huntington University in the Communication Studies program, it would be this: question everything. My studies at Huntington taught me to observe media, politics, theory, rhetoric and even interpersonal interactions with a critical eye; to always dig deeper to uncover the agenda and intent of the message. I credit my experience at HU for shaping my perspective of the world, and encouraging me to become an independent thinker and person.


In 2017, I had the pleasure of returning to HU as a panel guest to speak to students on my experience at HU, at Cambrian College, and my career. It was incredible to come full circle and be the one at the front of the class talking to students about the importance of building professional relationships, being punctual, meeting assignment deadlines and respecting professors. What a great experience!”
