Phillip Fain (MA student) and Tien Phan (advertising major) represented Grady at the TORCH (www.thetorchprogram.org) —sponsored college career fair for minority students from New York City public high schools in July. The college fair was designed to give high school students exposure to career training opportunities in communication and the arts.
Phillip and Tien reported that the college fair was a success. Most of the students had never considered UGA, but were excited by what they learned about what Grady and UGA had to offer. The attendees were serious about their education. Phillip and Tien provided advice on getting into college, what to expect from college life, and answered questions or concerns that the students had.
Phillip and Tien were two of the four Grady students involved this summer in the Multicultural Advertising Internship Program (MAIP) sponsored by the American Association of Advertising Agencies. Phillip was an intern at Euro RSCG Worldwide and Tien was an intern at the Martin Agency. We look forward to hearing about their experiences when they return to campus.
