Florida A&M University
The FAMU School of Journalism & Graphic Communication hosted a special series during Homecoming titled, “Grads Are Back.”
The event was designed to bring successful alumni back to campus from across the media, communications and entertainment industries to provide insight and training to students as they prepare to take flight in their own careers.
The series of events included a career fair that provided students with opportunities to engage with major industry companies and influencers such as Hill + Knowlton Strategies, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, iHeartMedia, Sachs Media Group, ESPN/Disney, CNN Viacom, Politico, and the New York Times.
“Grads Are Back” continued with an all-school colloquium, which included a panel of media professionals who also serve on the school’s Board of Visitors. Panelists included Kim Godwin (CBS News), Carolyn Fennell (Orlando Airport), Yvette Miley (MSNBC) Gregg Bishop (New York City Commissioner), Avido Khahaifa (Orlando Sentinel) and Denise Hendricks (CNN).
