The Syracuse University chapter of Women in Communications (WIC) will host Ashley Iaconetti G’13 of ABC’s “The Bachelor” fame on Monday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium, Newhouse 3.

Iaconetti appeared on season 19 of “The Bachelor” with Chris Soules, seasons 2 and 3 of “Bachelor in Paradise” and the kickoff season of “The Bachelor Winter Games.”

She earned a master’s degree in broadcast and digital journalism from the Newhouse School, and later served as president and CEO of E&S Media Creations LLC. She is now a correspondent for “Access Hollywood” and a host on “Clevver TV” and “Clevver TV News.” She also co-hosts “The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast” with fellow “Bachelor” veteran Ben Higgins, and the “I Don’t Get It” podcast with her sister, Lauren Iaconetti, and Naz Perez, former producer of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”

“Coming back to Syracuse to discuss my career and experiences since graduating in 2013 is such an honor,” says Iaconetti. “I credit my education at Newhouse for so much of the success I’ve had thus far. I certainly didn’t take the prototypical path post grad, but I’m incredibly excited to speak with students about crafting a career the unconventional way, [and] chatting about fun ‘Bachelor’ details and life in Hollywood. Plus, I’m really excited to take my husband to Dinosaur BBQ and get a patty melt at the Varsity.”

“Women in Communications is absolutely thrilled to be hosting Ashley, and I know SU students are just as excited as we are,” says WIC president Morgan Trau. “I know it will mean a lot to students to hear Ashley speak about how her experiences at Newhouse have propelled her forward in her career in communications. Ashley does it all: runs her own video production company, records two different podcasts weekly, reports for multiple news sites and publications and lets a camera follow her around for months at a time. At our event, she will be giving us a peek into her busy life.”

The event is free and open to the campus community. For more information, or if you require accommodations, contact Trau at (216) 970-6118 or, or Chelsea Stern at (856) 577-0302 or
