Trinidy Charles ’23
College of Communication
Major: Creative Media and Entertainment
Hometown: La Crescenta, CA
Trinidy Charles first became interested in the College of Communication (CCOM) due to the variety of opportunities and organizations the College offers its students. She’s part of the Butler Collegian, Butler’s student-run newspaper, as well as Indy Blue Video, which is a full-service video production house led by CCOM students.
In addition to the vast array of student organizations housed within CCOM, Charles also appreciates how general and open the various courses are, both within her major, and in CCOM as a whole.
“I’m interested in video production, and I liked how I could take a variety of different courses and learn about all parts of video production, instead of specializing in just one aspect,” she says.
The hands-on experience she’s received as a student in CCOM and at Butler is second to none, and she credits her many internship experiences as some of the most unique aspects of being a Butler student.
Charles is currently interning for a local public relations firm as a Video Production intern. During this internship, she was able to travel to Las Vegas for the CES Convention, a massive tech trade show, which typically hosts presentations of new tech products. While at the conference, she filmed b-roll and edited video clips, giving her a valuable, real-world learning experience.
