|Helene Weiss, 2013|
An update from Helena- February 2014- "Our trial team at Hofstra won the New York division of Regionals - beating Cornell, Fordham, NYU and all other - and will head to the National Competition in Houston, Texas on March 11."
"I have to thank you & the Park School of Communications for giving me all the opportunities to hone in my leadership and public presentation skills - as they have aided me more than I could've imagined."
Helene Weiss entered her first year at Hofstra University School of Law, accepted with dean's scholarship, after graduation.
She has been busy adjusting to the new environment of law school, reading about 100 pages and 10 cases a day, meeting lots of interesting, smart and thoughtful new friends, networking with professors and alumni, trying to secure a summer internship with the district attorney and working as hard as she can to make Law Review and the Mock Trial Team.
"The CMD program at Ithaca College doesn't just prepare you for careers in the "typical" fields of communication, PR, HR, Instructional design, etc. You will soon find that these unique courses and the particular skill setts honed are invaluable to almost any professional field. The classes I took for this major, such as Corporate Communication, Human Comm. in Organizations, and of course both of the essential capstones have helped me feel prepared for Law School more than I could have imagined. Selecting Communication Management & Design as my major was by far one of the best decisions I made at Ithaca College. You won't regret it. Enjoy the experience."
