Let’s Get Ready to Live-Tweet!
Over the next week, four Newhouse NYC students 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 Saturday, April 4, TRF junior (and MadRiot Entertainment intern) Aaron Goldsmith will share a play-by-play of his weekend in the city. Aaron graduates in May and plans on staying in NYC, so actually found an apartment to rent–talk about the real world! On Friday, April 10, PR junior and Relevent intern Juliette Saffer is not going to be live-tweeting from NYC. Nope, she’s going to be in California for her internship….at Coachella! What an amazing opportunity, and we expect to see lots of selfies in floral crowns. On Saturday, April 11, BDJ senior Kristen Eskow will live-tweet from her internship at “CBS This Morning: Saturday”–she works when everyone else is off! And on Monday, April 13, NOJ junior and DoctorOz.com intern Taylor Lupo will walk you through her life in the big apple.
Follow along all four days, and if you have any questions about Newhouse NYC, ask them! Just tweet your Q at the @NewhouseNYC handle.

FAVORITE NEWHOUSE NYC SPEAKER SO FAR AND WHY: I really enjoyed the panel with the six different alumni, sharing all their different experiences across the different industries and how they got to where they are today, especially regarding social media.

FAVORITE NEWHOUSE NYC SPEAKER SO FAR AND WHY: Thea Haigh. She gave an incredibly interesting presentation about her work with social media at Sunshine Sachs.
