JFOUND: Maggio, Brittany [MCstudent] intern with the Ad Council



Intern Spotlight: Brittany Maggio – Accounting Department
Posted On: 17th July 2014    By: Amelia Merritt   

Internship season is upon us once again; when college students around the country trade their sweatshirts for button downs and classrooms for cubicles. The Ad Council recently welcomed nine summer interns into the various departments of the company. To shed some light on what it is like to intern for the Ad Council, we will be featuring one intern each week on Adlibbing.

1. Where do you go to school and what are you studying?

I go to Manhattan College and I am majoring in Accounting.

2. Why did you decide to intern with the Ad Council?

I decided to intern at the Ad Council because it is not just about the numbers and the revenue, it is about making a difference in someone’s life.

3. What do you like most about interning at the Ad Council?

Everything! The people are so welcoming and friendly. I am learning so much. I can definitely use every bit of information I have learned throughout my career.

4. What is the social issue you are the most passionate about?

I am most passionate about the drunk driving issue. There have been multiple outbreaks from my home town where people lost their lives due to this.

5. What is one of your lesser-known talents?

I am great at doing other people’s hair and nails- but I can’t do my own!

MFOUND: Taveras, Aleysha [MCstudent] cited in school choice book



Invisible no more: New book profiles school choice success stories
By Ron Matus on June 5, 2014

*** begin quote ***

Aleysha Taveras’s mother, a teacher’s aide at a public school in the Bronx, saw too much violence and too little learning. So she enrolled her daughter in a Catholic school with, as Aleysha puts it, “teachers who would always be on top of me.” Now Aleysha is on the verge of graduating from Manhattan College and embarking on a career as a teacher.

MNews: a big foam representation of Brother Jasper


*** begin quote ***

School Spirit. Give the Manhattan crowd credit: They remained lively well into the second half even though their team was getting manhandled. (The sizable contingent of Stags fans, by the way, matched their enthusiasm and then some.) Manhattan doesn’t have a mascot — though we see no reason there shouldn’t be a giant foam representation of Brother Jasper of Mary, the university’s onetime baseball coach, prefect of discipline, and possible inventor of the seventh-inning stretch, for whom the teams are named — but they do have cheerleaders, a dance squad, and a band. In general, we were kind of astounded by how much of the goings on resembled a high-school game, and not just because of the layout of the venue: The softball team sold 50/50 raffle tickets to raise money, the dance team sold team calendars to raise money (they presumably got this idea from Zach Morris), and bunches of green and white balloons provided some low-budget décor. Score: 6/10.

Great Brother Jasper’s Ghost!!!

I think he’s onto something.

While a big foam representation of Brother Jasper might be fun, I’m sure the Brothers would see it as disrespectful. And, the crowd would be impacted, he was after all the Prefect of Discipline. Not a fan of rowdy or “edgy” students.

But, maybe we do need a “Jasper”, like the RU Scarlett Knight, or the WVU Mountain Man.

Now, what would a Jasper carry?

A beer and a slide rule?


Maybe MC will commission Jerry to create one. Or, license Jasperman?

Many a true word is said in jest!

Bet a lot of alums would pay to see that!

By joining or donating to our team, you will be a part of a life-changing event that gives everyone in the community a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that takes too much.

Please make a donation, or join our team and help us create a world where cancer can no longer claim another year of anyone’s life.

Recognizing Brand Leadership
Rex Whisman

*** begin quote ***

Yesterday and today I have the pleasure of facilitating a number of meetings on the campus of Manhattan College as part of a national education brand initiative that will connect over 40 secondary schools and six colleges and universities throughout the United States and Toronto. All schools are a part of an international network of Lasallian institutions.

These schools and the Christian Brothers order were founded by St. John Baptist de La Salle, the Catholic Patron Saint of Teachers. Just outside of our meeting spaces here at Manhattan, hang a number of banners that includes De La Salle and the Past-Presidents of the College. What a great way to honor the teachings and traditions of the past, and help visually recruit and retain brand champions. Each banner starts the conversation about story of this fine institution.

[JR: Yup, the "brand" is critical to keeping the doors open.]

JHQ: Aftermath Of Genocide In Cambodia 3/4 PM


February 5, 2010

Manhattan College’s Holocaust Resource Center Hosts Lecture About The Aftermath Of Genocide In Cambodia

RIVERDALE, N.Y. – The Manhattan College Holocaust Resource Center will host a lecture, The Aftermath of Genocide in Cambodia: the UN and the Failures of National Reconciliation, given by Dr. Benny Widyono on Thursday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. The event, which will take place in Smith Auditorium, is free and open to the public.

Widyono is the author of Dancing in Shadows: Sihanouk, the Khmer Rouge and the United Nations in Cambodia (2007). His book is not only a political memoir but also is an account of the flawed efforts of UN peacekeeping and the inadequacies of the international response to genocide by the Khmer Rouge in the aftermath of the Cold War.

After serving as a provincial director in the United Nations Transitional Authority on Cambodia (UNTAC) in 1992-1993, Widyono was named personal representative of the United Nations secretary-general in Cambodia in 1994. He remained in that post until 1997, when he retired from the United Nations after 34 years.

In retirement, Widyono has served as an economic advisor on Southeast Asian issues both in academia and in the business world. Since 2006, Widyono has been professor of economics at the University of Connecticut at Stamford.

For more information about this event, please call Dr. Jeff Horn, director of the Holocaust Resource Center at Manhattan College, at (718) 862-7129 or email jeff.horn@manhattan.edu.

The history of the Holocaust Resource Center dates back to 1996, when discussions among concerned faculty and administrators at the College and in the Riverdale community led to its founding with the mission of promoting Catholic-Jewish dialogue and educating future generations about the Holocaust. The center inaugurated its Visiting Scholars Program the next year, and in 2006, an additional annual lecture was added to the series that focuses on genocides other than the Holocaust.

More information about the Holocaust Resource Center can be found on its Web site at home.manhattan.edu/holocaustcenter.
