I started working at OTN day one of my freshman year as a production assistant and four months later I was tasked with producing/overseeing a live music-video show with over forty crew members. OTN was the foundation for my producing career and I’m so grateful to have been able to be a part of it throughout my time at Syracuse.

Working for OTN as a Promotions Manager during my time at Syracuse University taught me leadership and networking skills that set me up for success post college. I learned the importance of having fun while learning and working with my team. The freedom we had to take creative risks and learn from our mistakes helped us all to grow and develop.

The most important thing I could say about OTN would be that it allowed me a place to go and create. OTN allowed me a sandbox where I could attempt to do it all. More importantly, OTN provided a peer group and also an advisor that believed in me and worked with me to help make my visions a reality. I said there was a project I wanted to do and, more or less, OTN gave me the tools and said “get to work.” It was awesome.

OTN not only served as a creative outlet for me but as a testing ground where I was able to take what was learned in the classroom and apply it practically whether that be production, development or programming. My experiences taught me early lessons in leadership and the organization lead to countless fun memories and friendships. OTN was among my favorite experiences at SU

My time at OTN was a truly unforgettable, and opened many doors from me, from internships at Viacom to A+E Networks. Within 3 years, expect to learn the ropes of TV production, and go from Production Assistant to Creator of your own show.

OTN gave me the professional experience to help launch my career. But more importantly, it gave me a community from the moment I stepped on campus. I was fortunate to meet and work with people from all different backgrounds. It was collaborative. It was educational. And bottom line, it was fun. I will always treasure my time at OTN.

Working at OTN was a great place to learn about Television production while in college. It provided me a great base of knowledge, so when it came time to graduate and start my career in Television, I was ready!

OTN was by far one of my most favorite experiences at SU! Andy was insightful and there to guide you, but at the same time was hands off so you had freedom to create what your vision was. The knowledge I gained from my OTN experience help prepare me for my career.
