Bands, Brands, and the Wagner Plan

Now that I have really gotten into the groove of my job, I want to update you on what type of work I have been doing. The past few months have really allowed me to learn and grow, and I am more confident than ever that Wagner and this internship have prepared me well for what lies ahead. I work for Warner Music in the field of Brand Partnerships and Licensing. This may sound really confusing, but it actually is an incredibly engaging...

No (Real) Rest for the Interns

No (Real) Rest for the Interns

Spring Break is usually about going on vacations to the Tropics and/or partying with friends somewhere warmer than New England. For myself and some of my fellow interns, however, it just meant one more week of work. Not that I am sad about this — it was a great week! It was quiet and I was able to take advantage of some activities that I've wanted to do for a while, but couldn't find the time in the craziness of the semester....

The Trip Can Teach Us Too

By now, most people know that I spend most of my time representing Wagner off campus, and travel time takes up a larger chunk of my day. During the work day, I keep my mind open to receive lessons, whether they be about life or learning a new skill in the workplace.  Most of the time when I am on the ferry or in transit, there is only one thing on my mind: getting home. This past week I realized that, sometimes, we can learn new...

Wait, Real World… I’m Still in College!

I knew when I handed in my forms to officially declare an Arts Administration major that I would need to find a full-time internship for a semester, but I wasn't prepared for how quickly that time would come. Well... it's here and so far it has been quite an experience. A lot of majors are required to complete internship hours for their senior year or at some point during their time at Wagner. It is unique, however, to be off campus...

One Month Down

This past week marks the four-week mark of the semester, which means several different things. It means that I've been working at my new job for over a month, have watched the past couple of weeks fly by, and am one month into my last semester of undergrad... a little mind-blowing when you step back and look at it. If there is one thing that the past month has taught me it is to keep an open mind. Things are never what you expect, and...

“Rose from the Dead” With Tony Reonegro: The Ultimate Backstage Pass!

The Grateful Dead... everyone has heard of them, even if they don't know the music. The band toured relentlessly for more than 30 years, built one of the most loyal fan bases of all time (deadheads), and inspired a huge slew of bands to make great music today. As a big fan of the band, I was so excited to check out the new exhibit, "Rose from the Dead," by Antonio Reonegro, an art/photography professor here at Wagner. Tony did a lot...

Time Flies When You’re A Seahawk

Hope all of you Seahawks had a great Thanksgiving! A time when most of us go home and enjoy some great food and family ... but wait! What? It's already past Thanksgiving? It's at times like these that even after four years, I'm amazed how quickly the end of the semester sneaks up on me. I find myself in a state of thinking I have endless time to get everything done: homework, projects, work, commitments, interviews, the list goes on...
