Media Management News
In the midst of Alumni Weekend, there will be another important milestone acknowledged as the Media and Communication Department celebrates its 40th birthday. Faculty, current students, and alumni will gather for a birthday party in the Golisano Gateway Midlevel from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Friday, October 3. And yes, there will be cake.
St. John Fisher College’s Department of Media and Communication held its annual Spend-a-Day program on February 21. Prospective students from across New York State and even Pennsylvania spent the day with current faculty and students from the department learning what their futures would be like if they chose Fisher.
Her work has been seen worldwide, and Newsweek named one of her films as one of the five best non-fiction films in 2001. Lucky for Fisher students, she has joined the Media and Communication Department this semester as an adjunct professor.
Jeremy Sarachan, Assistant Professor of Media and Communication, has had an article published in the December 2013 issue of Journal of Gaming and Virtual Worlds.
Communication/Journalism students returned to Fisher this semester to a department with a new name. Now officially known as the Department of Media and Communication, the department has also added another degree program.
A unique program at Butler/Till Advertising in Rochester has given the College’s Communication/Journalism faculty a chance to bring more than just a snapshot of agency life back to the classroom.
When Brett Vergara ’14 left Fisher in May, he went straight to the Big Apple, ready to tackle his internship at MTV that he landed before the end of the semester.
