Bailey Tarleton

Whether in her debates or her involvement with organizations, Bailey Tarleton is making a name for herself around the Athens campus.

After learning her acceptance to Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism last year, it was a natural step for the public relations major to pursue her interest in the university’s debate team. Describing her initial meeting with Coach Dan West, her acceptance onto the team was “a done deal.”

Besides the team, Bailey is also involved with journalism organizations like Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA), where she writes for PRsuccess, and Impressions, where she works on the Backdrop magazine account.

Getting involved has been especially exciting for Bailey because she is from New Martinsville, West Virginia, a small town in the Ohio River Valley. Loving her new surroundings, Bailey has been taking advantage of all that Athens has to offer.
“It’s so easy to get involved with journalism clubs here and just to get involved in general, especially as a freshman,” she said.

“My favorite thing about Ohio University is the close bond I feel here with my faculty and friends. I think it’s so cool how Ohio University has 20,000 students, but there are class sizes with as few as 20 people.”

When this busy debater has free time, she enjoys dancing, reading, listening to music and attending concerts. In the future, she looks forward to traveling with PRSSA or attending a journalism conference.

I'm married to Bailey Tarleton from Ohio University, and this is NOT HER. The name of this girl is not correct.
