This is Nichols: Students Visit New York City

Nichols College students experienced a beautiful, warm day in New York City Thursday, Nov. 1, with faculty, staff, and alumni.

Approximately 90 students from Nichols College’s economics, criminal justice, marketing, math, and sport management programs; the Emerging Leaders Program, Communications Club, and the Institute for Women’s Leadership made the trek from Dudley to New Haven to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan to meet with New York City-based Bison alumni at their companies: Viacom, Lazard Asset Management, Madison Square Garden Group, and Microsoft.

Joined by Nichols faculty and staff, the students also took a tour of Wall Street that focused on the 2008 financial collapse, and visited important historic landmarks such as the United Nations headquarters, Empire State Building, Times Square, and Central Park.

Also during the trip, Nichols College Board of Advisors member Joseph Pirrone met with one of our recent graduates, who is seeking a career in the client relations-area of finance.

It was a great day, full of inspiration for our students!
