I decided to come to the College of Communication here at BU, just because of the level of expertise that our faculty has. Our faculty are Pulitzer Prize winners, they've made films, they've done ad campaigns. My professor currently has his book as the number one New York Times bestseller. So they're still practicing in the field, and they're still really sharing to just help you out, and to really give you that advantage in life.
I love studying communications in the city of Boston, because it's one of the largest media markets here in the US. The college has some of the best alumni networking opportunities in the city. We have some of the most powerful women in Hollywood.
Other prominent alumni include Jay Roewe, who's the executive producer for Game of Thrones at HBO. The talent range of people coming out of COM is huge. Students get hands on experience from the first day they walk in to COM, if they so choose. There's great events and clubs. WTBU, which is the radio station.
My first semester this year, I took a class called radio newsroom. And as a part of that class, I would show up and have 2 and 1/2 hours to go and report. And my class and I together would make a 30 minute news show at 11:30, after only being there for 2 and 1/2 hours. And a lot of my friends who are studying film and TV have gotten internships through the LA program, so they're currently out in LA writing films, working at HBO, or working at A&E. So it's a really great opportunity to again, get that hands on experience, both inside and outside the classroom.
