Springtime in the City

The city is back to life! Trees are budding, flowers are being replanted, color is seeping back into the humans and surroundings of New York. People are smiling and laughing as they walk down the street, happy to finally unravel and de-bundle themselves from their winter jackets, hats and scarves. Dogs sniff their way down the street, able to enjoy their walk and not freeze their paws off! I think tears filled my eyes the other day as I walked down the street in a short sleeved shirt,  sans the jacket. What does all this mean….SPRING IS HERE!

Not only does the nice weather mean frequent visits to Central Park, the Highline, South Street Seaport and countless other sunny-day sites throughout the city but also a slew of festivals and events only spring in the big apple has to offer!

Below are a few that I will be trying out as we head to the end of the semester! If you happen to be visiting NY during this time check them out! As always, let me know what you think :)

1. Tribeca Film Festival, April 15-26

Who doesn’t love new movies? The Tribeca Film Festival is a world renowned festival that happens right in downtown Manhattan, as well as across the city. You can get matinee tickets for as little as $10 and tickets to guest talks for $35. The movies are ones not to be missed.

2. Cherry Blossom Season at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, April 1-26

Instead of hopping on a jet to Japan, hop on the subway to Brooklyn and see the natural wonders of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Get your iPhone camera’s ready because its impossible to see these beauties and not snap some photos. The Cherry Blossom Trees are a sure sign of Spring, so you don’t want to miss it. Only $10!

3. NYC Hot Sauce Expo, April 25-26

I know everyone doesn’t have the love of hot-spicy foods that I do…but maybe you’ll think twice after attending this event. The third annual hot sauce expo will be taking place at The Brooklyn Expo in late April, showcasing 45 vendors! Come with an empty stomach and leave thoroughly pleased. From spicy pizzas, to spicy bloody-marys – your tongue will be on fire…in the best way possible 😉

4. Kentucky Derby, May 2

Chances are you don’t have tickets to the actual Kentucky Derby horse race…but I’m sure you have a fabulous hat somewhere in your closet that you’re dying to break out! This is your opportunity! Many bars and restaurants around the city will be involved in this classic southern event. Gather your friends, don your best derby hat, find a bar showing the race and transport yourself to Kentucky! I recommend finding a horse who’s name makes you laugh…then root for them!

5. The Metropolitan Museum of Art Rooftop

I will definitely be heading to the Met Museum to check out the “Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky” exhibit running through May 10th. There are countless exhibitions to view, enough to fill your afternoon with beauty, history and culture. Before you go, make your way to the Met rooftop. This is one of the best views of the city, overlooking all of Central Park. Bask in the sun, feel the breeze, and look to the sky line – breathe in the beauty and magic of this city!

Getting to Know Your Professor

Hi Readers! Its so important to get to know your teachers here at FIT. As I’ve said in past blogs, they are a wealth of experience, knowledge and information and many times can help you land internships or future jobs! Introducing yourself at the beginning of the semester is a must, and if you take a liking to him or her, maintain the friendly relationship. Once you leave FIT, it will be great to have a connection remaining at the school.

Today I wanted to shine the spotlight on one of my favorite professors, Linda Finnerty! Professor Finnerty is a highly regarded professor in the Advertising and Marketing Communications department here at FIT. Last semester, she made my Tuesday mornings exciting with Principles of PR and this semester, she’s teaching me “real world stuff” in Corporate Communications.

I can’t begin to tell you the number of valuable industry and life lessons I’ve learned from her. Her lectures (which are always filled with interesting stories from her days on the job) have given me a realistic look into the world of PR. I must say she is one of the best professors I’ve had while at FIT. Her courses are highly sought out by students. You’d be lucky to learn from her! Impressive career + amazing stories + likeable personality = wonderful professor.

Here are some questions I asked Linda Finnerty highlighting her career and place at FIT!

Which classes do you teach at FIT?

Advertising & Promotion, Marketing for Integrated Marketing Communications, Workshop in Business Communications, Publicity Workshop, Integrated Marketing Communications Management, Principles of Public Relations, Public Relations for Museums and Arts Organizations, Corporate Communications and Special Events Marketing Public Relations.

Before you began teaching at FIT, what was your career?

Prior to teaching at FIT, I was the Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications for a major Wall Street firm.  I was responsible for advertising, marketing, public relations, investor relations, special events marketing, sponsorships, corporate culture and corporate social responsibility.  It was a high stress job, required lots of creativity, the ability to multitask and manage a large staff of people, crisis communications skills, relationship building – all while maintaining a sense of humor and the ability to keep things in perspective.

What was your proudest career moment?

My proudest career moment was receiving the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2009.  To qualify for the award, you have to be nominated by your peers and submit recommendation letters from a number of students and faculty members.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at FIT?

The thing I like best about teaching at FIT is the focus, dedication and creativity of our students.  Class discussions are always lively and the quality of the work presented at the end of each semester is amazing!

What advice can you give to students looking to attend FIT?

My advice to students hoping to attend FIT would be to focus on improving their writing skills, because writing is a critical skill for success in the business world; to read a newspaper daily to keep in touch with what’s going on in the world; and be curious and receptive to new ideas and all the opportunities that come your way. And, above all, don’t take yourself too seriously.

If that’s not good advice, I don’t know what is :)

We All Have a Story to Tell…

By this point in my college career, I can’t even tell you the number of papers I’ve had to write. From papers on genetic disorders, to the Harlem Renaissance, to Karl Lagerfeld and to direct marketing. As interesting as some topics may be, its not the most fun. But hey, I’m in college…what do I expect?

This semester I’m taking the very enjoyable Fiction Writing class. The class is an advanced writing course that develops students’ understanding in imaginative storytelling. We read short stories and novel excerpts and participate in writing exercises to examine writing process strategies. In a workshop environment, we develop and create a few pieces of short fiction.

There are no rules in fiction writing. You can write about whatever you want, whatever excites you or makes you feel. My professor encourages us as writers to use our imagination and tap into parts of our brains that we may have forgotten existed. We all know what makes a good story, from the books we read to the movies we watch. This class helps us to hone in on our storytelling skills and produce creative works of art.

We have workshops with our pieces and discuss with our classmates what works and what doesn’t. It’s an open environment, no judgement allowed. It’s nice to read other students work and have them read mine.

I find this class to be very therapeutic. As I said, it gets old writing papers that aren’t coming completely from your mind but referencing the ideas and research of others. To create a story is freeing because you’re in control. You control the world your characters live in. I’m able to pull from experiences in my life, good or bad, and use that as inspiration for my pieces of writing.

As a student yourself, would you find it more enjoyable to write fiction? Do you prefer writing research papers? Are you interested in the English and writing classes at FIT? Let me know!

Adult Stuff 101

Every semester at FIT, I continue to fall in love with my major. Its so exciting and validating when you’re sitting in a class, absorbing the information, engaged in what the professor has to say – and finding yourself actually enjoying all of it.

I have had some great classes throughout my time at FIT. Some favorites include Journalism, Publicity Workshop, Advertising Copywriting, and Video Studio Production.

A favorite this semester is Corporate Communications. Corporate Communications aims to develop the skills necessary to create communications that successfully influence an organization’s internal and external publics. As students, we learn to identify emerging business trends, interpret annual reports and related business documents, and convey business news in a clear, concise style through a variety of business communication and public relations tools.

I find this class very valuable because I’m learning about terms and processes I’ve heard adults talking about for years but never understood myself. We learn about 401k’s, the stock market, how to invest in stocks, why to invest in stocks and many more useful items that will benefit me as I make my way into the workplace.

Our term project, which we work and develop upon throughout the semester, involves choosing a public company in an industry we’re interested track a trend within that industry. We study the background of the company, how the industry trend effects the industry as a whole and then how it effects the company alone. The company I’m studying this semester is Netflix! Not only do I use its on the regular, but I find the internet TV industry to be compelling and ever growing!

What classes are you interested in at FIT? Are any of you thinking of studying Advertising and Marketing Communications? Do you have any questions regarding the major? Let me know!

The Application Secret

Some of you readers may be going through a very exciting yet intimidating process at the moment. Completing your FIT application process! The SUNY application had to have been filed by January 5th, 2015 – which I’m sure you all know. Supplemental Materials deadline is February 1, 2015, which includes academic documents, Academic History and essay form, portfolios and so on. Let’s pause for a second, take a collective inhale…exhale. You’re almost there!

As a high school senior, this period seems to be all you can think about. You put all your energy into this process – filling out forms upon forms. Writing essays, gathering up anything and everything that represents your aesthetic, your art, your being! It’s a tough thing to do!

Now looking from the other side, someone who has been accepted and attends the Fashion Institute of Technology, I believe I am quite justified to give some advice :). As an applicant, you want to stand out and look special. Focusing on what sets you apart from the application before and after you. I am not a design student, therefor my application process for Advertising and Marketing Communications was different. However, the overarching theme and intention that all prospective students hold is exactly the same. And the “sparkle” the admissions office searches for is the same. And that is this…

Be YOU. Create from your heart. Write from your heart. Photograph from your heart. Design from your heart. Build from your heart. Are you catching my drift?

If you are putting your passion into the work you’re sending over to FIT, it will show through to whomever’s reviewing it. By expressing your individuality and creativity you will successfully get your point across. Trying to create something you “think” people will like, or “think” they’re looking for or “think” others want to see – you’re doing more harm than good in the long run.

FIT is a breeding ground for the unique, the creative, the hard working. A big theme that I wrote about in my application essay was how I looked at FIT as a big puzzle. Each puzzle piece connected with the next, to complete a larger picture – a new generation of creators and pioneers. I finished my essay by saying, “I want to be a piece of that puzzle.” Luckily, I now am.

If you are applying to FIT, I am wishing you the best of luck in this final process!

Brendan’s Guide to Winter Break

As I sit here writing, it is currently “blizzard-ing” outside my window. Oh, January. You look so pretty…but then I’m forced to go outside and I remember how cold-hearted you are. The excitement and joy of December seems like a distant memory. The holidays never seem long enough. However, it is now a New Year. Another year to move forward with your goals and aspirations. Another year to check those boxes off on your bucket list. Another year to live your best life!

Winter break in college is like a double edged sword. You can use it to your advantage, or let it take advantage of you. This break is the perfect time to reboot after a hardworking semester. We all can’t wait to get home and not have projects, or finals to worry about! Its a great feeling.

My first year at FIT, I was new to the “6 weeks off at Christmas through January, instead of one week off like high school, to do whatever you want with no homework or responsibilities.” It was awesome to have that much time off from school, and to be home with my friends and family. That feeling never goes away, I just approach my winter break’s differently now than I did back then.

My first winter break I was basically a blob. My couch and I became even closer than we were before, molding to each others shapes. Netflix was a great friend for those few weeks. And yes, I have wonderful human friends as well. We would get together, get food, go to the local Target, because the options are quite limited in wintery upstate New York. By the time my break was over, I felt gross, out of shape, like I’d eaten two years worth of Christmas cookies. I hadn’t accomplished much on a small checklist I’d made at the beginning of break. I had done my fair share of relaxing, to the point of exhaustion, which lead to more relaxing! A never ending cycle!

But hey, it was my first time and I was learning. That is why I vowed then to make my winter breaks more productive and beneficial to ME. Maybe some people have no problem doing nothing, cozying up in their home and snacking on Xmas cookies. I have now learned that these few weeks are the perfect time to make a list, and get things done. Things you’ve been wanting to do all semester, but may have not had time for. 

SO, if you feel like your break could have been a bit better, I’ve come up with a short list of tips for you to follow. 

1. Indulge in the Holidays

By no means am I saying to not fully relax and soak up the holiday season. Please do!! By that point in our year, we need the family parties, delicious meals and holiday movies on ABC family. Embrace your time with your friends and family who you may not see throughout the year. Give them hugs and tell them you love them! Give back, do something kind, spread the holiday spirit! EAT LIKE YOU’VE NEVER EATEN BEFORE!

2. Set Realistic New Year’s Resolutions

Once the holidays are over, it’s easy to slip into “Post Holiday Depression,” as I like to call it. The hype is over, the Christmas tree is plopped at the end of your driveway. After New Years, write a list of some things you really hope to do within the upcoming year. Big picture resolutions like “WIN THE LOTTERY,” may be a little unrealistic. Think of personal goals you’d like to attain. Say something kind to someone every day, Read more books, Go to a concert. I find that smaller, positive goals are easier to check off my list! That way, when you look back next year you’ll see how much you’ve accomplished. The energy you enter into the New Year with is a great indicator of how your year could turn out. This year I want to take more Bikram Yoga classes and eat healthier foods! I can do that :)

3. Find Enjoyable Hobbies

If you live where it snows, you know some days seem longer and more mundane than others. Its too cold to be outside, or the roads are too icy to drive on. Looks like your spending the day at home! This is where hobbies come in handy! I re-learned how to knit this winter, and have been really enjoying doing that. I’m working on some belated Christmas gifts. I also have been pecking away at the “Books I want to Read” list. (Is it obvious that I like to create lists?) Find what passes your time without feeling like you’re just passing time. Make sense?

4. Get a Job

If you’re like me (or most kids my age I know) you’re a typical “broke college student.” I’ve had a job since I was 15, even throughout college. Personally, I enjoy to work for my money. It feels so much better spending it when you know how hard you worked 😉 I understand some may not be home long enough to find, apply, and get a job. Luckily, I have a job that I can come back to whenever I’m home, at a local bistro. Since I’m home for a few weeks, it’s the perfect time to build my bank account back up before the next semester. I don’t have much time for a job in the city anymore, with school and interning. If you have the option to work a few shifts while you’re home, do it! It keeps you busy AND gives you some spending money!

5. Review Your Upcoming Semester

We’ve all had that nightmare where you walk into school (usually in your underwear) and don’t know where any of your classes are, you’re completely unprepared, and everyones pointing and laughing at you. Let’s not make that nightmare reality, shall we? MyFIT has many ways for you to learn about your classes before actually sitting down at your desk. I like to screenshot my schedule on my phone, so that when the first day comes, I have a visual. It’s a big help for locating room numbers, because I never remember! I also enjoy looking at who’s going to be in my class. It’s always comforting to know you have a friend in class on your first day. Log onto MyFIT, click the Student tab, scroll down to “My Courses,” click “Click here to enter,” click on your course title, then click “Members” under Personal Tools. It shows you a full class list! It helps to subdue any nerves and get you excited for the upcoming Spring semester!

Everyone is different. Everyone approaches things differently, even our college winter breaks. Long story LONG, do what makes you happy and makes you feel good during this time! For me,  enjoy feeling like I’ve accomplished things over break. I hope that some of these tips are helpful to you! Please enjoy the rest of your winter breaks, and HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR!

Welcome to the Jungle: AMC Career Expo 2014

FIT has always had a wonderful reputation of providing its students with one-of-a-kind learning experiences outside of 27th street. Every week on campus, there is another opportunity offered to students. Everyone at FIT, from professors to students, are so connected within their respected industries. Through those connections, internships and even entry level jobs are often easier to find than you may think! However, it does take a nice resume and a good head on your shoulders to nail it down 😉

To make it even better, FIT’s Special Events class puts on an annual Advertising & Marketing Career Expo, which is a fancier way of saying Job Fair. About 60 New York based companies gathered in the John E. Reeves Great Hall Wednesday evening from 6-8 pm in hopes to gain some new interns and even employees! Ranging from corporate fashion designers like Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan to smaller boutique agencies like 24/7 Laundry Service, there is bound to be a company that interests you.

This years AMC Career Expo flyer!

This years AMC Career Expo flyer!

Students are able to walk around to different company tables and introduce themselves and start a conversation with these representatives. This was my first year to take advantage of this amazing opportunity that is offered to all AMC students.  Dressed to impress, I entered the Great Hall with a stomach full of butterflies. I didn’t know what to expect, or what companies I was hoping to talk to. It can be overwhelming walking into the hustle and bustle of a job fair and immediately begin networking yourself. But I must admit, this was such good practice for me. I am a good conversationalist…once a conversation has begun. Sometimes I get nervous to be the one initiating the conversation, especially with professionals. However, this experience definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone in the best ways possible. I walked up to the table, introduced myself – and it only got easier and better from there!

I brought a few copies of my resume, ready to pass them out! All in all, I gave all of my resumes to different companies and had some great conversations with potential employers. They were all very curious about my past interning experiences, which I was happy to tell them about. In return, I asked a lot of questions about their companies and positions within their companies. Asking questions is important. It doesn’t make you look “dumb,” actually the exact opposite. It shows that you’re interested and want to learn more!

I walked away with 5 business cards, and potential internships for Spring 2015! The first thing I did when I got home was to type a follow-up email to the company contacts I was interested in pursuing. Within the email, I thanked them for their time and how I enjoyed chatting with them. I reiterated how I was interested in a possible internship and attached another copy of resume, just to be safe! The next morning, I had 2 emails from the top 2 companies I wanted to intern for! In both, they mentioned how it was so nice to receive a follow up email promptly. ALWAYS, send a follow up. The best follow up is a Thank You note, however email was the appropriate option for this situation.

I am so happy and grateful that I went to the Career Expo. It’s a great networking event for students who may not have much experience in the industry already, or who are looking to gain more experience. This is something that is so special and unique to FIT. If you didn’t take advantage of this event this year, be sure to keep your eyes out for next years flyer! You don’t want to miss this!!

Homecoming: GIRL CODE @ FIT

This past Monday kicked off the beginning of FIT’s Homecoming Legacy Week, which runs from October 27-November 2! Homecoming is a collegiate tradition that unites alumni, faculty, and current students to celebrate they’re institution.

FIT has a jam-packed week full of super fun events, interesting panel discussions and even shopping on campus! Click here to read more about Homecoming/Legacy Week!

On Monday night, the FIT Student Association hosted it’s first ever comedy show! I am a big fan of live comedy so, I was excited to learn that FITSA is bringing in more events such as this.

IMG_4110The comedy show was called “Laugh FIT with Girl Code,” and it was featuring (you guessed it) comedians from the MTV Show  “Girl Code.” It featured Alice Wetterlund, Andrew Schulz and Carly Aquilino!

Carly Aquilino

The show was HILARIOUS!! If the roaring laughs from the crowd didn’t prove it enough! It was so cool to see the Haft Auditorium filled with laughing students. After midterms, we could all use a good night of laughs! I think the FIT Student Association hit the nail on the head with bringing some comedians from “Girl Code” to campus. Seeing as more than half of the student population is female – many speak girl code. I’m close to fluent in speaking girl code myself 😉

At the beginning of every semester, if you look at your tuition bill, there is a fee of $65 dollars that goes to Student Activities. Events such as the comedy show are perfect examples of where this money is actually going. FITSA is constantly coming up with new ideas, performers and events to come to our school. I have hope that they may be planning some really cool events/performers in the next year! We will have to wait and see! :)

If you’re on campus, be sure to involve yourself in the rest of the weeks fun activities!

PS – Have a Happy (and safe) Halloween!!!

A New Internship!

I wanted to write a quick blog post to you all to share some exciting news! I recently accepted an internship with SPI Marketing!!

What is SPI Marketing you ask? Well, SPI Marketing is a leading gay consumer / LGBT marketing firm located here in New York. SPI knows the urban and gay consumer better than anyone else. Companies seek out SPI to introduce them to the gay and lesbian market, or to reenergize their presence in this advantageous market! Some of their clients include ABSOLUT Vodka, Diet Pepsi, American Airlines, LOGO, Aquafina, IBM and many others.

Being an Advertising and Marketing Communications major, working with this company is right up my ally. When I was interviewing, we were discussing so many topics, and processes that I’ve studied in my major related classes! It’s so cool to see how it comes to life in the real world – definitely helps me learn.

You may be asking how I got the internship. Well, thankfully I maintained a great relationship with the man I interned for last year, Daniel Vosovic. Long story short, he sent my resume to some friends, they sent my resume to their friends, and voila! It shows the power of networking here in the city. Once you make a strong relationship with someone in the industry, it definitely benefits you later when looking for internships or jobs!

Don’t forget – most of all of our professors here at FIT have or are currently working in the industry! They are the perfect people to talk to about different opportunities.

I’ve only been in the SPI office one day so far, and it’s a very fun and relaxed environment! That makes me more comfortable as an intern to ask questions and actually learn! I’m so excited and grateful for this opportunity and I will definitely keep you all posted! :)

FIT Club Spotlight: Hula Hoop Club!

A big part of the college experience is getting yourself involved on campus. Whether that be in sports teams, fundraisers, school clubs – you name it, it’s a good idea! Personally, over the past two and a half years at FIT I’ve been involved in the FIT Dance Team, FIT Skyliners Acapella Group and of course, the FIT Admissions Blog! Each activity was a great way for me to do what I enjoy, meet new people and feel connected to my school.

There is a club for anyone and everyone here, which is wonderful. Ranging from the ANIME club, to the French Language and Culture Club, to Media Design Club and to W27, the on campus newspaper. Can’t find a club for you? Well, if that’s the case you can actually create your own club! It’s hard work but it can definitely pay off. Just ask my friend, Amanda Gedney!

Amanda Gedney is a 20 year old AMC major (like myself) who was the pioneer and creator of the Hula Hoop Club here at FIT! Now the club holds events and bake sales, has many members and is gaining more every week! Let’s see what she had to say about her club!

BC: When did you start hula hooping?

AG: I started hula hooping about 2 years ago. Winter break of my freshman year of college my sister and I bought hula hoops from Toys R Us for something to do as an ab workout while binge watching Netflix. Then we started to look up YouTube videos and attempted the first trick “the lasso.” With many attempts and flying hoops throughout my living room, I realized how fulfilling hooping was.

That spring my two friends who go to Binghamton University joined the hula hoop club there. Once the summer started I begged my friend Taylor to each me everything she knew. She also made me my first beginner hula hoop, 38 inches (the wider the hula hoop the easier it is to use.  We played and practiced on the beach that summer and I was able to hoop at the first music festival I went to called Camp Bisco!

10171294_786619084684314_4563928984094357709_n

BC: How did you think to start the hula hoop club at FIT?

AG: I thought to start the club at FIT because of the club at Binghamton. I thought it was so cool how my friends had the opportunity to be apart of a group of hoopers. It’s the best way to learn new tricks and understand each other’s “flow.” Flow meaning the individual rhythm each person puts into their hula hooping. I also wanted to find hoop space for the winter. In the city it’s easy to hoop in a park when it is nice out, but in the winter it’s impossible. Through the club I wanted the opportunity to have indoor rehearsal space. I also wanted to find fellow hoopers at FIT because hoop friends are the best friends.

BC: What steps did you take to create the hoop club?

AG: First off, it was a lot of work to start the hoop club. You have to attend multiple meetings with the student government to pitch your idea. You also have to create a club constitution and prove that you have ten members interested. The last step was getting the student body’s approval at the student council meeting. I’ll always remember that day. I had to stand on the stage at the Katie Murphy theater and convince the 75 people there as to why FIT needed a hoop club. It worked though! 

BC: What types of things do you do in the hoop club?

AG: We meet every Tuesday from 1-2. It is very casual and is a great stress reliever in between classes. We also go to concerts together and hoop in parks during the weekend. We’re not just a club; we’re a little hoop family always welcoming new friends! Everyone is at different stages in their hooping skills and it’s so great to learn tricks from each other. Every hooper knows that amazing feeling when you finally learn that new trick. This semester we’ve been learning new flow arts from new members! We’ve had some male hoopers, which are always welcome!

10155364_777420032276377_1465978639152348731_n

BC:  Do you recommend FIT students to join a club?

AG: absolutely recommend students to join a club at FIT. Especially at FIT you have to go out of your way to be involved and I recommend every student to do so. In high school I was the President of my class and on many sports teams. Coming to FIT I wasn’t sure how to get involved. I went to the club fair my first semester and saw that there was a marketing club. Being an AMC major I figured that was the club to be in. I was very dedicated to the AMA Marketing Club and I became President the year after, which I still am currently. I knew that I also needed something fitness related and a great stress reliever, hence the Hula Hoop Club. 

My advice to new students is to get involved! It’s the best way to meet new people and find those with similar interests. My second set of advice is if something that you want isn’t available then start your own! My philosophy is if you don’t let anyone tell you no, you’ll soon realize how much you can accomplish.

Thank you SO much Amanda for answering my questions and informing the readers on clubs here at FIT!! You definitely are the perfect example of getting yourself involved on campus, while remaining a successful student.  You might have just recruited a few more hoopers…myself included :)

Have a great weekend everyone!
