Where are Park School alumni?

We've graduated thousands of alumni since we began teaching communications in 1930, and they can be found in every corner of the profession across the globe.

2018 graduates Kim Joyce and Tom Garris started working together as producer and anchor for WPTZ’s (Burlington, VT) 6 and 11 pm newscasts in July – only a few months after they did the same thing at ICTV.

Young alumni often socialize - and help each other get gigs in the industry - in Los Angeles

The Ithaca LA network is a strong one! My fellow Ithacans helped jumpstart my life here in LA. When LA was still new, it was my Ithaca family who not only served as a resource for picking up gigs, but also as a place to feel at home. I live with 3 Ithacans, am dating another one, and see lots of others on a regular basis for all sorts of social events. Ithaca College provided me with an incredible professional network, but also a huge group of friends to make the next stage of my life just as exciting as my years on South Hill were.
