About Me

Hello! My name is Jill Shaughnessy and I am in the Arcadia Class of 2022. I'm a political science major and I have a minor in media and communications. One day I hope to be a White House Correspondent. I spent my first semester (FYSAE) in the best place in the world- London, England- and it was the best experience ever! I also got to participate in Spring Preview where I went to Vietnam over spring break! I plan to study abroad as much as I can while at AU. I just got back from an internship semester in London where I interned with CBS News at their London Bureau. I have interned at the International Network of Street Papers in Scotland as well as interned with Congressman Donald Norcross and the House of Representatives. On-campus, I am apart of the Arcadia Ambassadors, Honors Program, FYSAE mentors, and Knight Club (dance club). Besides clubs, I love learning about leadership, being super busy, and staying involved! When I'm not giving tours or dancing, I love hanging out with my friends on Haber Green or going shopping!
