Newhouse ADV Students are Live-Tweeting on @NewhouseNYC This Week!
This week, two Advertising juniors will take over the @NewhouseNYC Twitter handle to give you a behind-the-scenes look of what their days are like in NYC this semester. On Wednesday, February 25, Michael Quagliana will show you what a typical weekday is like, from his internship at Catch 24 to his Race, Gender and the Media class at the Fisher Center. And then on Saturday, February 28, Young & Rubicam intern Alex Parducci will give you a play-by-play of her weekend plans in the city that never sleeps.
So follow along both days, and if you have any questions about Newhouse NYC, ask them! Just tweet your Q at the @NewhouseNYC handle.
And so you get to know them a bit before they start tweeting, here’s a crash course on Mike and Alex:
NAME: Michael Quagliana
INTERNSHIP: Catch 24 Advertising & Design
FROM: Northfield, New Hampshire
BEST PART OF NYC SO FAR: Walking past the Empire State Building every day on my way to work
MOST DELICIOUS THING I’VE EATEN IN NYC: Bagels (all of them)
FAVORITE NEWHOUSE NYC SPEAKER SO FAR AND WHY: Thea Haigh, VP of Digital and Social Media at the PR firm Sunshine Sachs because she reminded us to not live vicariously through our phones, and that creative inspiration comes from real life experience.
NAME: Alex Parducci
INTERNSHIP: Young & Rubicam
FROM: Los Angeles, CA
BEST PART OF NYC SO FAR: The feeling of knowing that I have officially mastered the subway.
MOST DELICIOUS THING I’VE EATEN IN NYC: Naruto Ramen’s (3rd Ave between 89th and 90th) Pork Fried Rice. I’m not a big meat eater, but this dish wins me over every time.
FAVORITE NEWHOUSE NYC SPEAKER SO FAR AND WHY: Thus far, my favorite guest speaker has been Ariana Finlayson from Marina Maher Communications. She was not only an incredibly eloquent speaker, but her knowledge about the social sphere was inspiring.
