At Rooster GNN I had the opportunity to explore my major (journalism) outside of the regular Emerson College classroom (where I study). The program guided me through career paths I had never considered before, such as international correspondent or fixer.
If I had not gone to the seminar, I would have never known about these alternate jobs for journalists. In each session we learned something new and unique. Moreover, as an aspiring journalist the seminar was an excellent place to improve my writing. The mentors were very knowledgeable industry professionals that gave us a peek to what it is like to be a journalist. It was very interesting to hear the perspective of someone I wouldn't usually meet at my college. I really enjoyed how the program organizers immersed us into the Spanish culture. Towards the end of the first week, we had a tapas reception. There, we were introduced to local drinks, specifically wine, and food (tapas). Not only was the food amazing, but we also got to meet and talk to all the mentors and the students in the other session.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
