During her junior year, Harrington spent a semester abroad in Barcelona, Spain. Senior year, Harrington worked on the strategy team for the American Advertising Federation (AAF) National Student Advertising Competition. She is very proud that the Penn State team placed 2nd in the NYC district competition her year. To conclude her disability studies minor, Harrington wrote a capstone paper on how to better include people with disabilities in advertising. Harrington was an inaugural member of the Bellisario Fellows program and represented the senior class of AD/PR students.
