Graduating Seniors!

Tisch Salute is fast approaching and we're sure many of you are anxious about your life after Tisch. Join us for a panel and networking event with recent UGFTV alums on Thursday, May 11th at 6:30pm. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear how recent alums made the transition and to answer any questions you may have. Following the panel you will have the opportunity to network with alums and learn how to get involved with the UGFTV Alumni Board, the leaders of the NY-based alumni group. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
