Senior communications major Chris Trick has had numerous experiences at LIU that have helped shape him into the person he is today. Originally coming to LIU to be an English teacher, Trick has changed career paths multiple times on his college journey, exploring options in both journalism and business, as well as a possible career in marketing.
During his time at Post, Trick joined multiple clubs including the Newman Club, the Institute for the Study of Democracy and Liberalism, as well as writing for the campus radio station and newspaper. Trick was also on the committee that organized the freshman common read during his sophomore year.
Trick is currently exploring multiple options for possible career paths, deciding between attending law school or pursuing a career in marketing. His dream job would to one day become an executive manager, following in the footsteps of other members of his family who hold executive positions in finance.
Another career Trick would be interested in pursuing would be an on air host for a political talk show, such as Fox News, which would allow him to pursue his interest in journalism. Trick considers himself to be unbiased, which would make him a good candidate for the position, but does not want to associate with the toxic nature of politics.
Outside of school Trick is a lector at his local church, a position that allowed him to improve his public speaking skills and advocate for causes that he is passionate about.
Trick also enjoys a multitude of hobbies such as reading, writing, exercising, watching television and spending time with friends and family.
After graduation, Trick plans to move away from Long Island, preferably to the south. He doesn’t have a concrete plan of action set yet, but is waiting to see what life has in store for him.
“I’m seeing where life takes me right now, because I’ve learned that you can’t plan everything but that life can be very pleasant sometimes and surprise you in ways that perhaps one could not have imagined,” he said.
