"This is so much more than a hockey team. I enjoy every day getting to come in, only to discover a new depth and layer within the Lightning organization.”
Jamie Paolucci ’17
Intern with the National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning

In Their Words

Savanna Reilly ’17 works diligently — both in the classroom and on the field. Reilly, who helped usher our field hockey team into the BIG EAST tournament this season, has become a leading scorer on the team, and a star recruit among employers — securing a competitive position more than a year before graduating.

What Our Graduates Are Doing

Where are they now?

A Director of Operations at ABCNews, the VP/Creative Director at Viacom, Senior Director of Game Entertainment with the NFL Arizona Cardinals, the Manager of Corporate Communications at Alexion Pharmaceuticals, an Emmy-Award-winning Director of Photography.
