    Testimonials

    My three years at St. Lawrence College in the Advertising and Marketing Communications Management program set me up perfectly for my career. I use what I learned in every single one of my classes on a day-to-day basis. I have yet to be asked to complete a task that is out of my ability whether it is event planning, videography, press releases, social media, or local media buying. I was able to be hired directly out of my school placement, as well as had many offers of employment shortly after graduation.
