This past summer, Bravo TV executive and host Andy Cohen invited New York alumni to the Manhattan bar Capitale to mix and mingle, enjoy libations, hear his tales of real housewives and television success, and launch the BUAA’s Alumni Network for Media, Communication & Entertainment.
“Andy was personable and funny,” says Robin Liftman (SMG’83). “He openly shared with the audience how his career has evolved through his hard work, openness to new ideas, and proactive attitude.”
More than 350 alumni and guests packed the house, many eager to kick off BU’s newest affinity network by swapping business cards and trade secrets. “It was exciting to be surrounded by BU grads in New York,” says Bruna Maia (CAS’10). “And Andy was charismatic and warm. He made sure we felt engaged by his story and comfortable asking him for career advice.”
