The 10th annual Lewis B. O’Donnell Media Summit is being held on Oct. 16 and media professionals such as Connie Schultz, Al Roker and Charlie Rose will be around to talk to students throughout the day.
This event is a great opportunity for students to interact with professionals in the field they may potentially be a part of in just a few short years. The panelists will take questions from students who attend the event, providing an opportunity for them to get answers from professionals who are actively working in the media.
Marking a decade of summits is no small task and something that should be praised. Thanks to the incredible generosity of Louis A. Borrelli Jr., we now have a day-long event for the campus to enjoy. A few years later Roker would supply additional funding to rename the media summit after a former professor of his and Borrelli’s.
Borrelli will be honored with a Presidential Medal on the day of the summit. This is something Borrelli more than deserves as his contributions to this college have improved the campus for students outside just the School of Communication, Media and the Arts. His contributions as a mentor to Oswego State’s three media groups have helped improve the quality of materials provided to students on this campus.
Without a doubt, the media summit this year is not to be missed. The topics being discussed by panelists will provide students with information that may not be discussed in classes or not even within their major. With the event now being held in the Marano Campus Center Convocation Arena, it is certain that a record number of people will be attending the event.
Attend the 2014 Lewis B. O’Donnell Media Summit on Oct. 16 at 2:30 p.m. You will not be disappointed.
