Alumni/Undergraduate Student Connections
Earlier this fall, twelve Communication students traveled to NYC to visit alumni with alumni in various communication companies. The students were part of the NYCOMM Seminar which included on-campus meetings where students researched about the companies and alumni they would meet on the trip. Each company offered wonderful insight into their daily lives and allowed our students to develop a better understanding of their companies and their industries. Thank you to all of the alumni who shared their time, those who joined us for a reception at the Cornell Club and also to the alumni who funded our trip. This year our students were able to visit Nintendo, SocialCode, NBCUniversal, M Booth and the Unite Nations. Please take a minute and let our students tell you more about their trip!
