University of Southern Mississippi

Our final stop in the Bayou state was at the University of Southern Mississippi, situated in Hattiesburg. We were fortunate to have another bright, shiny day on our side to help us get the most out of our time on campus!

Here are some photos from our visit:

 

This gorgous antique car is parked in the lobby of the Theater and Dance building on campus.  We wish that it could have been taken out for a spin!

Southern Miss 1

Built in 1930, The Dome is definitely a campus favorite and focal point:

I found Nemo inside the Student Union 😉

Southern Miss 3

The Power House Restaurant stands out on campus because of its delicious dishes and its distinctive smokestack.  The smokestack was the original power source that heated campus!

Southern Miss 4

 

Thanks so much to everyone who took time to show us around campus.

We had a great time and hope to see some Golden Eagles this summer in NYC!

Mississippi State University

Next, we made a visit to the sprawling campus of  Mississippi State UniversityWe were lucky to have had a bright shining day for our walk around the beautiful campus. Here are some of our favorite sights:

 

A double take was needed when passing the PGA Golf Management Department at MSU.  I was sure that I had just passed a Pro Shop!

It’s no surprise that this beautiful sitting area is right outside of the Interior Design Department.  Their students’ keen visual eyes make this spot both beautiful and blissful!

Could this campus get any prettier?!

Bully the Bulldog keeps school spirit alive by sitting right outside of the Student Union:

 Thanks so much again to everyone who took time out of their day to show us around. Hope to see some Mississippi State students this summer in NYC!

 

University of Mississippi

We are happy to report our photos are about to get much sunnier as we tell you more about our travels down south!  We recently toured the beautiful state of Mississippi, as well as a few of the impressive universities that call MS home.

Our first stop was to the sprawling campus of University of Mississippi, where we quickly learned how to say “Go Ole Miss!”  We also quickly learned how hard the UMiss Career Center works to make sure its students have a bright future.  Here are some other highlights from our trip:

 

A trip to Ole Miss would not be complete without stopping by their Spectacular Stadium!:

Smack dab in the middle of campus is this beautiful fountain! If only it had been a little warmer for it to be flowing (guess we’ll just have to come back!)…

Although seemingly empty today, The Grove comes alive during football season when tailgaters travel miles to cheer on their team:

Thanks to everyone who took the time to show us around, hope to visit again soon and to see some Ole Miss students this summer in NYC!

Syracuse University

The next stop on our travels was to the gorgeous campus of Syracuse University in upstate New York. We are thrilled to say every summer EHS welcomes a solid group of bright ‘Cuse students who are here doing internships to get a head start on their careers.

Founded in 1991, the Tina Press and David Rubin Career Development Center (CDC) in the Newhouse School of Public Communication, offers a comfortable place to research communications careers, find job and internship opportunities and learn how to network.

Syracuse 2

 

To date, we have 9 Syracuse students already planning on spending this summer with EHS! We can’t wait to help them get the most out of their time in NYC.  In the meantime, we’ll share some of our favorite moments from our visit:

Syracuse takes their team spirit very seriously. We found this colorful bunch in the School of Architecture:

Syracuse alumna Vanessa Williams wore this dress in the 1983 Miss America pageant. It now resides in the Sue Ann Genet Costume Collection and Research Center at Syracuse University along with hundreds of other designer classics:

And here are some more classic designs:

Thanks so much again to all who took time to show us around, and a special shout-out to our Syracuse Campus Ambassador Matt Mazer for spreading the word about EHS when we aren’t on campus.

See you this summer, ‘Cuse!

Johnson and Wales University (Miami)

While we were in the sunshine state, we made sure to visit the Miami campus of the esteemed  Johnson & Wales University. Not only did we learn about the terrific training programs the school has in place for its students, but we got to take in some fun sights while we were at it…

 

Not your regular Campus bookstore. Johnson & Wales Miami has a great selection of knives for their culinary students:

The campus bookstore also sells funny t-shirts:

(And cute kiddie t shirts too!…)

Johnson And Wales 3

Thanks so much again to all who took time to make sure our trip was extra special. We hope to see some Johnson & Wales students this summer in NYC!

University of Miami

After the long winter we’ve had in NYC, we were more than grateful for our sunny visit to the University of Miami!

The staff was incredibly warm and welcoming, making our trip extra special. We hope to see some UM interns this summer in NYC! In the meantime, here are some photos from our trip…

 

We got a special behind-the-scenes peek at Miami’s TV studios thanks to our Campus Ambassador Elena Tayem , who uses them every day via her Broadcast Journalism studies:

Another peak at the Miami studios:

And here is the anchor desk. Elena wants to be a news anchor so she spends a lot of time here!…

U Miami 4

This is a picture of the university’s sparkling student center complex. According to Miami Magazine, “the design of the student activities center connects interior and exterior spaces offering vistas of the lush, tropical campus.”

U Miami 7

Modern art meets nature…

U Miami 5

We stumbled upon the beautiful Glasgow Lecture Hall while exploring the School of Architecture…

U Miami 6

Our visit was filled with gorgeous scenes like this, taken at the University of Miami Law School:

 A hearty thanks again to all who took time to meet with us and show us around. Hope to make another visit very soon!

Skidmore College

We were very happy to have the opportunity recently to host a table a few weeks ago at Skidmore College. We are always in awe of their inspiring students and staff (for example, don’t miss staffer Penny Loretto’s insightful Internships column on About.com), so it was a pleasure to be able to spend some time talking with so many bright folks in one afternoon.

We hope to see the Skidmore students again this summer in NYC!
