Pan ePortfolio

The PAN Portal

At Newhouse, professional connections are everywhere. In a partnership with PAN Communications, a national integrated marketing and public relations agency, graduating students work with PAN public relations professionals to showcase their experiences through the PAN Portal ePortfolio Review.

A portal to a career in public relations

The Newhouse public relations experience culminates with a capstone project: an online portfolio of student work, reviewed by real-world professionals to help students become job-ready by graduation.

Inside the Portal

Newhouse partners with PAN Communications, founded by alumnus Philip A. Nardone Jr. ’82. An adjunct professor in the public relations department for more than 15 years, Nardone leads a team of PAN professionals—including several Newhouse graduates—that guide students to pursue their desired public relations career.

The PAN Portal team visits students on-campus each semester, speaks to classes about their portfolio work and advises students on how to present experience in the public relations job market. Students begin collecting experiences starting their freshman year, as final portfolios are ultimately comprised of student’s writing, research, design and digital media materials

NYC Magazine Experience

Each year a dozen senior magazine students spend three days in New York City—speaking to editors at some of the nation’s top magazines, networking with successful magazine alumni, receiving résumé critiques from industry professionals and attending panel discussions with recent magazine grads, who offer advice on everything from finding an apartment to landing that first job.

This trip began in 2005 when professor Bill Glavin decided he wanted to create an opportunity for top students to see the city and to meet alumni. Professor Glavin knew that not all students could afford unpaid internships in the city, and he wanted to provide a similar opportunity to experience New York City and make connections at magazines for deserving students.

Professor Glavin died in 2010, after 37 years at the Newhouse School. In 2011, the magazine department’s annual trip was renamed the Bill Glavin Magazine Trip in his memory. A generous donation from Eric Mindich, and his wife, Stacey Okun Mindich, a Newhouse alumna and student of Professor Glavin, has underwritten these benchmark trips ever since.

Rezak Music Business Lecture Series

One keystone of the Bandier Program in Recording and Entertainment Industries is the David M. Rezak Music Business Lecture Series.

Every week of each semester, top industry leaders guest lecture at Syracuse, to dialogue with Bandier students about trends, challenges, opportunities and career paths. We also require, and help you to acquire, a minimum of three internships—many students will do more. And while a great career path can be forged without doing so, we encourage students to immerse themselves in the music business and new life experiences in Los Angeles, London and elsewhere through our Syracuse University Los Angeles Semester and Syracuse University Abroad programs.
