NYC Field Trips and Reception Brings Students and Alumni Together

Astrachans and Wirths at NYC reception

The CCI Development team hosted an alumni event in New York City on Jan. 22 at McCormick & Schmick in midtown Manhattan.  Students in NYC for the annual JEM and Ad Club field trips joined the group to interface with alumni working in the Big Apple. 

Professor Eric Haley and Assistant Professor Courtney Childers took Ad Club students to BBDO, HGTV, McCann Erickson, Mindshare, Weiden + Kennedy, and Y&R Brands. Professor Sam Swan took JEM students to ABC, CBS, CNN, ESPN, Food Network, Fox News Channel, NBC and WABC.

CCI students were very appreciative of the great sessions they experienced and of the advice CCI alumni provided them during the CCI Alumni Reception.
