Garden Spot

Dr. Anni's Sports Communications class recently visited the TD Garden and the TD Garden's Sports Museum in Boston. 

Kathleen Longenbach of the Sports Museum provided the class with a comprehensive tour of the media facilities, including press boxes, press rooms, NESN studio, print media room, and team locker rooms.  She then brought the students to the 2-level Sports Museum where they enjoyed learning about their favorite teams through public relations, marketing, and advertising. 

Additionally, Renee Fraker, the Sports Development Manager for the Garden, and Elizabeth Dowd, the Public Programming Coordinator for the Garden, spoke to the students about sports communications careers and the importance of internships, networking, and transferring to a four-year college.
