I am officially at the halfway point. Although the idea of leaving is a sad one, my bank account and health will certainly be better for it (eating out a lot). This last week was pretty challenging in class, but we did have one surprise. Continue Reading
About the Competition
The Columbia Case competition was organized by the Columbia Graduate Consulting Club (CGCC) of Columbia University, which was aimed to expose those students who want to pursue the field of consulting and have no prior experience in it. A total of four students from the Business Analytics and Project Management program represented UConn at this competition. Continue Reading
An Excursion to Switzerland
This was my first (and only) full week of classes. The nice thing about Europe is they have a whole lot of Federal Holidays, which makes this last week feel especially long. One of the cooler language assignments from this week, was a scavenger hunt in which we left the classroom and had to quickly find our way to various landmarks by asking directions from locals. You can’t get that kind of language practice in the States. Continue Reading
To put it simply: I credit Mary Caravella’s “Professional Selling” class (specifically, the role-play) for my job at a local TV station in Providence – WPRI/FOX Providence.
I graduated in December 2015 with a marketing degree, and spent the next few months applying for positions everywhere from Rhode Island to California. I had eventually ended up turning to temp agencies in the hopes of bettering my chances. Continue Reading
It has been a pretty exciting and crazy first week. I have already done some pretty fun things. I got to start my trip with a long layover in Dublin, Ireland. Note for future explorers, nothing in Dublin is open before 9:30AM. Highlights include seeing the Guinness Factory (fun fact: they have a 9000 yr long lease with the Irish government), see the St. Patrick Cathedral, and stop in Temple Bar. Continue Reading
Would you ever think that the guy who starred in a YouTube video guiding people on how to give the perfect ‘wedgie’ was the powerhouse behind the digital presence of WWE?
That’s my MBA mentor – Adam Kirshner in a nutshell. An all-rounder in the world of producing but just a humble, real guy who proudly represents UConn Nation. Continue Reading

UConn Spring 2017 Internship & Co-op Fair
Wednesday, February 1, 2017
11am – 3pm
Storrs Campus, Student Union Third Floor
This past fall, I had the pleasure of attending the 2016 Associated Collegiate Press Media Convention in Washington, D.C. I, along with three other students, represented The Daily Campus newspaper in the four day convention. Journalism, communication and other media oriented college students flocked from all across the country to discuss and learn media technologies and practices.
As a young journalist and communication writer, I’ve met a lot of interesting people along the way. I’ve learned bits and pieces about dozens of professions and organizations. From 3D printing to student volunteer projects, I’ve learned a little about a lot. However, I’ve never had the pleasure of networking with so many individuals in my specific field. Continue Reading
Every year, I find myself having a fair amount of work to get done over break, whether it’s job applications, scholarship applications, or internship applications. And every year, I struggle with actually getting things done. I mean it’s called “break” for a reason; it’s the prime time to procrastinate. Continue Reading
