AEMM Grad Students Tell Their Story… in Tweets!

AEMM grad students chat about their experiences.

The AEMM grad students rap about their first year at Columbia College Chicago

Twitter is such a funny thing. You’re limited to the briefest of responses, and you have to be very good at editing, making up new words, and abbr. words, to fit everything you might want to say into such a limited character set. I recently read an older article from the New York Times that claimed that this abbreviated form of conversation is actually honing dialogue skills rather than dismantling them. Whether that’s true or not is a subject for another post, but these honed and candid answers regarding the AEMM program are loads of fun. Click onward to see the conversation as it happened…

#AEMMgrad Chat

The Arts, Entertainment & Media Management graduate students had a chat with Professor Kelly Page and Professor Dawn Larsen, faculty of the AEMM department. The following is the result of that conversation.

Ever wondered how the #Aemmgrad students feel about the MAM program @ColumbiaChi? Well you can find out today on the #aemmgrad chat @3pmCST
Challenging and a lot of fun. I’m excited for next semester as an #aemmgrad student.
Fall semester was challenging-which is exactly what I wanted from the #aemmgrad program! I definitely have a new perspective on arts mgt!
It was busy but opened up a lot of new doors for me! The first semester as an #aemmgrad went really fast! @dlarsenaemm @cccaemm
I wanted a hands-on kind of program. Where we learn about things and immediately apply them. Plus Chicago is awesome #aemmgrad

And I really liked the people I met when I visited at the open house. Really inspiring people doing really inspiring things! #aemmgrad

I love the variety of arts in Chi- everything from the symphony to to festivals to theatre to comedy. Plus, I love the vibe at CCC #aemmgrad
I’ve seen more comedy/improv this semester than ever! I loved the neighborhood festivals in summer. There’s ALWAYS stuff going on! #aemmgrad
Fundraising. Totally rocked my world. The prof was amazing. I never realized how inspiring fundraising could be. #aemmgrad
It’s not about money. It’s about changing the world. #fundraising #aemmgrad world.rocked.

That’s too hard. I loved #behavioraleconomics and #accounting, and I liked that revenue
generation and marketing dovetailed. #aemmgrad
@dlarsenaemm Enormous experience and love of what she does – that changes everything. #aemmgrad

Mary Felice blew our minds with a talk on convergence!! I thought about things I had never thought about! The future is now! #aemmgrad
it’s really hard to pick out one moment. it’s been a whirlwind of amazing experiences! #aemmgrad
Jason Stephens with his aliens vs humans. He was so determined to help us understand economics at any cost! #perseverance #aemmgrad
Jason Stephens teaches ecob with more energy than the easter bunny! He made our class fun and exciting! #aemmgrad
@r_mrock sounds amazing! Did he work in the Zombie Apocalypse too? #aemmgrad

My favorite project was working on @TimeLineTheatre company, because it created a chance to help a growing company. #aemmgrad @dlarsenaemm

I’m helping to plan the #SXSW showcase for @AEMMPRock and @AEMMPHipHop! We’ve got some solid stuff coming to #Austin for #sxsw2014 #aemmgrad

Probably the development portfolio for fundraising. It really forced me to step out of my comfort zone. #aemmgrad
Who was the most interesting person in your #aemmgrad class ?

I’m hesitant to say with a loaded word like “interesting”! We are so diverse in personality, background, and where we are going! #aemmgrad
Thanks to all for a great #aemmgrad chat! Happy holidays and see you next semester!
