In their Words

Finding success in the classroom and on the field

In their words

Savanna Reilly ’16, MBA '17, worked diligently — both in the classroom and on the field. Reilly, who helped usher our field hockey team into the BIG EAST tournament in 2017, became a leading scorer on the team, and a star recruit among employers — securing a competitive position more than a year before she graduated.

Rising morning star

An internship in Washington, D.C., as a production assistant with Fox News Channel led to a job for Carley Shimkus ’09. She’s now an associate producer for Fox Business and Fox News.

She began her career working on the Imus radio show.

“I learned a lot from him,” she said. “He’s an expert interviewer who listens to his guests when they talk and asks questions others might miss.”

Recently, she regularly makes appearances on "Fox and Friends."
