Adstravaganza, Another Reason To Study Advertising At BU

Just when I thought I couldn't love Boston University's College of Communication more, they throw an awesome after work happy hour event at midtown NYC bar Branch.  Adstravaganza brought together BU Advertising Professors and their former Ad students through open bar--wine, beer, top-shelf-- and endless hors d'oeuvres like shrimp skewers and mozzarella tomato paninis (not sure if sliders and quesadillas count) and a sushi buffet.  About 200 people RSVP'ed and the turn out was great.  Adstravaganza is just another example of how BU emphasizes networking and maintaining meaningful relationships.  I was so happy to see Professor Cakebread (Ad 101), Professor Austin (Art Direction), Professor Verret (NSAC) and although I never had class with Professor Fauls (Media & Interactive) he was a pleasure to talk to especially since now I work in digital media.

I can't thank BU COM faculty enough for their passion and support and the excellent party they threw tonight!

A few words from Dean Tom Fiedler.  Berkovitz, as always, the best.
NSAC Advisor Professor Verret!  Come to BU on May 1 to support the 2010 NSAC Competition featuring client State Farm
BU even had its own drink- The AdTini.  Ice Louge and all.
All in all, BU COM rocks.
