As our Penntertainment community of alumni and undergrads continues to grow, I’m proud to announce that we’re now partnering with Penn’s Undergraduate Media & Entertainment Club (UME) and will be providing them with a home and voice here on the site.
Let me introduce you to Greta Baldwin (C’15), Tshay Williams (C’17), and Jackie Van Loan (C’16), UME’s undergraduate chairs. :
“It’s not u, it’s me. Actually it’s UME- Penn’s Undergraduate Media & Entertainment Club! At UME, we work hard to bring influential players in the entertainment industry onto the Penn campus to share their insights and inspire the Penn student body through a number of interactive events all year long.
This year UME is so excited to be joining the Penntertainment family and we look forward to fostering a strong community between Penn undergraduates and alumni! We hope this relationship can help shed light on possible career paths for passionate students and expose alumni to up and coming talent. Plus, we always welcome alumni to come back to Penn speak with the group! Here’s a video for you to get a taste of one of the many speaker events we put on with alumni:
Whether you want to be the next Wendy Finerman or Elizabeth Banks, or you’re just a Netflix junkie with a passion for film and television, UME is your red carpet into all things media & entertainment at Penn. Like Will Smith, we’re headed from West Philadelphia to LA- join the ride!
Love your job.
Looking forward to growing this relationship! …And Penn alumni, stay tuned for UME’s first “Penn Undergrads You Should Know About” post coming soon!
