Mandy Albers is a 22-year-old Senior who can be found over on the Braircliff campus in New Dorm. She is a Marketing major with a concentration in Advertising and Promotion and is minoring in Accounting. This Monroe, NY, native decided to come to Pace because of the business program and because the campus is close enough to home and to New York City. Mandy also says that after visiting the campus she realized, “I just liked it here.” The attractive Pleasantville campus lured Mandy in-- just like it has so many other Pace students.
Mandy keeps busy by being a part of the Ad team. This is her second year taking part in the club. In order to prepare for the district competition in May, Mandy and her team must complete a 32-page plan book and a 20-minute presentation. It was at this district competition last year that Mandy and her team finished in second place. This feat is something that is considered by Mandy to be one of her favorite accomplishments here at Pace. She also has had an internship with Sony Music working for RCA Records. Through the internship she gained experience in digital marketing, and she was in charge of updating artists’ websites and fan pages. Some artists included Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon, Daughtry, and Kelly Clarkson.
Being a member of the Honors College has played a major role in Mandy’s experience here at Pace. She loves the events that are held, especially when it involves working with the Pleasantville Cottage School children. Her favorite event is the Easter Egg Hunt where quality time is spent with the children from the PCS. Mandy has also enjoyed the cooking class and rock climbing events. Her favorite overall experience came during the making of a video presentation with fellow Honors students Katie Werner and Chris Uhlick for her MGT 250 class.
After graduation Mandy will be like most graduating students, looking for a job that provides happiness. She also wants to re-locate to be within 30 minutes of New York City. Her words of advice for those students who are still trying to figure things out are, “Find something you like to do; join clubs, get internships, and try to figure out what you want to do.”
