Advertising students Allie Rich and Anna Safren were recently scheduled to travel to NYC to receive their AAF Most Promising Multicultural Students awards as reported in CPN last fall. When they discovered that their Monday flight was going to be cancelled, they rushed to the airport Sunday night and caught a flight to New York. The high drama they experienced at the end of the January 2016 Ad Club trip to New York, when all airports closed due to winter storm Jonas, taught them a valuable travel lesson that they put to immediate use.
