With our commitment to training and developing college students for New Jersey's workforce, we've started introducing our new Student First and Project Approach initiatives to provide students with real-world media training, professional development, and portfolio development. We met with Rider University (March 6, 2024) and Bloomfield College of Montclair State University (March 7, 2024) to receive feedback on our new college student development approach. Both institutions expressed interest in partnering with us and offered feedback on ways to successfully implement the program.

We're dedicated to preparing students for careers in media and the rigors of the real-world.
