"I still have my tickets from everything we did and I plan on keeping them safe, along with photographs to remind me of the trip, not that I will ever forget it!" – Emily Shaw
On 22nd February our Level 3 Art & Design and Media students had the once in a lifetime opportunity to visit the Big Apple with the college! As well as day trips that go hand in hand with their course, Emily Shaw, one of the Media students said “New York was an amazing trip; I got to see tourist sites and also had free time to explore the city with my friends."
The four day trip had something for everyone and gave the students a chance to see many exciting careers in action. They were lucky enough to go on a tour of the NBC studios – famous for big shows such as Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Heroes and old favourites like Friends and The Office. It was a personal highlight for Emily because “it gave us an insight to what it would be like to actually work there and it made me want to go into Television even more!" The students visited both the Guggenheim Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art; as well as The Paley Centre for Media and Sony Wonder Technology Lab. TV and movie site tours were packed in so our students got the full experience of the city that never sleeps. Emily summed it up nicely – “I still have my tickets from everything we did and I plan on keeping them safe, along with photographs to remind me of the trip, not that I will ever forget it!"
