How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

Working at WUNH 91.3 fm as music director and sports director helped prepare me for the real world post-college… Plus it was exciting to call the UNH Hockey games with this crew! Because of all the networking and promotional work at WUNH and MUSO, I gained valuable experience performing social media before the term was even coined! I spent many hours emailing, phoning and writing to record labels, listeners and DJs. I once took a phone call from Dave Matthews!
