Special Events

Premier Communication Experiences

Dr. Lewis B. O'Donnell Media Summit
Our annual Media Summit is a tremendous opportunity for students to have access to leading industry professionals, without ever leaving the SUNY Oswego campus. Prestigious guests and alumni will arrive to campus in the fall semester to discuss current and future media trends. These professionals will be attending classes, providing career advice and the summit will culminate with a live broadcast. Get involved in this premier event and get your questions answered about trending topics in the media. Students can become active members in this day by escorting guests, providing marketing/public relations/social media, delivering technical support for the broadcast, and/or being a participant.

During the day attend one of several on-site visits and  then join faculty and alumni in the evening for one-on-one conversations and career advice. Often times students cultivate relationships with individuals that will lead to internship opportunities and entry level jobs. For more information: New York City Connections
