Lubin Students Selected As AAF's 2014 Most Promising Minority Students
Lubin students Michelle Sanchez and Ashley Small have been selected as AAF's 2014 Most Promising Minority Students. Michelle Sanchez says, "It is a privilege to be considered amongst the 50 Most Promising Minority Students by the American Advertising Federation. To have the opportunity to collaborate with other students who are dedicated to achieving excellence is the greatest academic honor I could possibly receive in my undergraduate career. My development has been greatly influenced by my education at Pace and my participation in our Ad Club and also our Ad Team programs. This new recognition will provide me with networking, interviewing and industry immersion opportunities, all of which will enhance my knowledge and career."

Ashley says,"I found passionate people and motivation at Pace. Being named one of the Most Promising Minority Students of 2014 by the American Advertising Federation is very exciting for me. Acknowledgement from AAF is an amazing honor, but more of a reflection on the Lubin School. Lubin encourages friendly competition among us (the students and particularly, the Ad Team students), which constantly drives me to push my limits and never give up. I was born a marketer but now I am a skilled and polished advertiser because of the Lubin staff and faculty, especially Dr. Chiagouris."

Pace at the Olympics
Keeping up with Olympic results on the internet? Thank Lubin MBA and Seidenberg professor Matt Ganis, who was part of the IBM team that, in 1996, developed the system that made online Olympics coverage possible.
