Hello fellow Patriots! My classmates and I will leave for the Empire State on March 17 for a Media Discovery Trip in New York City with Associate Professor of Mass Communication Maria Lundberg, who will be our adviser.

Trip participant Brooke Holden and I have created a blog, and we want you to keep up with us! Our group will be visiting news organizations including The New York Times, CBS News, ABC’s Good Morning America and ABC’s World News with Diane Sawyer. We will also be in the audience for a live taping of The Chew on March 19.

This is an amazing opportunity for us and we would like your support! Follow Armand Broady, Brooke Holden, Diana Levy, Eric Pearson, Sommer Turner, our adviser Maria Lundberg and me on our journey through the Big Apple at our blog We will be posting pictures, video and text to keep the student body up-to-date with our adventures in the city.

Interact with us on our blog or on our personal social networking sites.  Thanks for the support, FMU, and we’ll see you all after spring break!
