Center for New Media Faculty, Alum Participate in Career Panel

Last Monday, Center for New Media faculty and recent grad Dustin Schultz ’10 of Union Productions participated in a career panel on media, communication, and art. Faculty members including Professors John Shafer, Rick Eriksen, Rich Lenoce, Donna Bontatibus, and Judith deGraffenried shared tips on how their education impacted their career path, as well as gave practical advice on working in their respective industries. Dustin shared how his education at Middlesex and internship and job experience got him to where he is today–owner of a video production company.
