You are invited to assist Cal Poly Pomona students successfully accomplish a true “learn-by-doing” project while also contributing to a scholarship to benefit deserving Communication majors.
Students in Cal Poly’s Events Planning class (COM 4446) learn about the logistics of special events planning through both academic instruction and a “learn-by-doing” education in the planning, production and execution of a major event
That event is Alumni Night for Communications graduates on Friday, Nov. 18, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Claremont.
In the spirit of Cal Poly’s “learn-by-doing” philosophy, the course affords students the opportunity to learn and experience hands-on budgeting, fundraising, operations, event scheduling, program management, hospitality, volunteerism and philanthropy. It is intended to help prepare students for a career in public relations, communications, multimedia journalism, hospitality and more.
Funds raised by the event will benefit Communication students for many years to come. Proceeds from the event will go to help fund the Legacy Scholarship for Communication majors.
Just as importantly, the event allows Communication alumni to reconnect and it gives students the chance to network with graduates of Cal Poly’s Communications program and establish connections that could lead to future career opportunities.
