Communication students have the opportunity to visit cities with strong entertainment industries through a program known as the “Diederich Experience.”
Initiated in spring 2017 by Dr. Kimo Ah Yun, former dean of communication and current acting provost, the program started out as a trip to Los Angeles. Led by faculty, a group of upper division communication students who had the goal of working in L.A. post-graduation traveled to the heart of the entertainment industry, connecting with successful alumni and touring various studios, sets and production companies.
Now, the program has expanded to New York and Chicago too, allowing more students to experience this opportunity of a lifetime.
