|Alumni Relations Communications Coordinator, Columbia Business School|
As the Alumni Relations Communications Coordinator at Columbia University's Business School, my primary responsibilities are to develop, manage and monitor alumni discussion groups and social networking sites, as well as interact with alumni directly by providing hospitality and serving as the main line of communication through phone and email. Similarly, I provide updates to the alumni database, develop content and manage upgrades to the alumni website, as well as provide event management support for events.The CMD program at Ithaca College supports creative growth and gives students the freedom to explore the major to find which area is the best fit based on individual preference. For me, I discovered my passion for event planning, fundraising, and working in the higher education sector, through the help of my professors and the basic structure of the major itself.
