Q & A With Lisa Ranieri


“Q & A” is a segment that the AUMnibus will be featuring periodically so you can get to know the staff members of AUM better. We also plan to interview AUM students on campus as well. The format is simple: ask the student a series of questions. Sometimes the questions are relevant to the college experience, and sometimes they are completely random.

In a reversal of roles, we sat down with Lisa Ranieri, AUMnibus reporter, to get to know her a little better.

“This is cool!” said Lisa Ranieri, who is typically the one who interviews people for Feature Friday.

– What is your major?

I’m a journalism major with a minor in business administration.

-What are you trying to accomplish at AUM?

I’m trying to make college the best that it can truly be. I, not only, want to get the best education from AUM, but I also want to have fun. Another thing that I’m trying to accomplish is beginning the Communication Club with a friend of mine. This club has me pretty excited for what our department has held for the future of news for AUM.

– What is your dream job?

My dream job is to make it to USA Today, FOX or CNN as a reporter or news anchor. Some goals I have are: to keep myself focused in journalism by contributing to the school newspaper, get an internship with WSFA and meet influential people to help me reach my dream career.

– What are some of your roles on the AUMnibus staff?

My role on the AUMnibus staff is to write articles and interview people. I have the privilege to be a reporter for the AUMnibus.

– What is your favorite movie?

One of my favorite movies is “Fireproof.”

– What is your favorite book?

I don’t have a favorite book, per se, but my favorite author is Nicholas Sparks.

– What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is Mediterranean food. Any and all kinds.

– Do you have any advice for people just starting college?

My advice is to branch out and get out of your comfort zone. Join clubs and organizations. Be Greek. This not only helps you grow but you meet so many people who will either be your friends or future employers.
