Featured Intern


Mallory Minor. I am a senior Communication Studies Major with a concentration in Interpersonal Communication. During Summer 2015, I completed my internship in Atlantic City, NJ with One Atlantic, an event planning company.  I worked with event planners, brides, vendors, and staff to execute one-of-a-kind weddings for every couple! We also plan events on a larger scale, such as the 2016 Miss America Pageant luncheon and other large corporation events.  I shadowed four areas of the business including Sales/Marketing, Event Planning, Banquet Managing, and Culinary Execution, which are all crucial communication channels that follow these upscale events from start to finish. From planning one hundred thousand dollar weddings, to planning a wedding for a New York Knicks NBA Dancer, this internship has provided me with experience to help prepare me for my future.
