Sarah Barth ’16 is from Cleveland, Ohio and is studying in New York City this semester with Newhouse NYC. She is a dual major studying Broadcast & Digital Journalism at the S.I Newhouse School of Public Communications and Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
In NYC, Sarah is enjoying taking classes at the Fisher Center, visiting media and technology organizations, engaging with alumni guest speakers and interning at ABC’s “This Week.” She is planning to spend the summer in NYC interning with NBC. On campus in Syracuse, Sarah has been involved in Hill Communications, CitrusTV, Z89, and PRSSA.
What is your favorite thing about SU?
I love the dedication students have to their academics while not being too high-stress and competitive about it. Syracuse is the perfect school because I am surrounded by peers who are equally committed to their academics and future careers but know how to find time for relaxation and fun. The size is also perfect because there are always familiar and new faces everywhere I go.
What is your favorite SU memory?
The Duke-SU game from my freshman year (2014). It was the first time we played Duke and it was a really close game that went into overtime, with SU taking the win and remaining undefeated! It was an amazing experience.
If you could tell a new or incoming student just ONE thing about SU, what would it be?
No matter your interests or passions, Syracuse will definitely have something for you to get involved with and become a part of the community. There’s so many organizations and activities that are all so welcoming. They want to continue their legacy once the current members graduate and that’s where you get to be a part of it!
Good Morning SU! My name is Sarah Barth and I’ll be taking over the account for the following week! I am a junior Broadcast & Digital Journalism and Political Science dual major currently spending the semester in New York City through @newhousenyc I’m excited to share with you all the amazing experiences I’m having in New York. This semester, my classmates and I work at media internships, take some interesting classes, and explore all New York has to offer! This picture is of me at my current internship with @abcnews working for “This Week.” When I’m back at @syracuseu I often stay busy between my classes, working part-time at @faegans (an amazing restaurant right on campus), and being an active member of @alphaphisu . I have also been involved with @z89radio and Hill Communications PR in previous semesters. I can’t wait to show you around NYC this week! -SB #SyracuseU
I have Mondays and Tuesdays off work, which opens many unique opportunities to explore the city. This #latergram was from earlier in the semester taken at the top of the One World Trade Center. Going on a weekday, there was absolutely no line. The nice day gave me this view of the entire greater New York area. Stay tuned this week for more fun events and activities that I’m involved with this semester through @newhousenyc – SB #syracuseu
One of the classes Newhouse students take during their semester @newhousenyc is Social Media Platforms, Processes, and Perspectives. While learning about how to maximize your brand and a corporate brand on social media, we also get to hear from some really cool speakers! Tonight, we were so lucky to have been taken around @google to see their offices and learn about their sales careers. Thanks so much for the tour! Keep checking in to see what else @newhousenyc students get to experience! -SB #SyracuseU
A New York classic! Magnolia’s Bakery is a staple from office birthday celebrations, to our @newhousenyc Com Law students’s final class. In New York City, there’s an endless supply of famous food spots! My classmates and I have certainly enjoyed exploring many of these this semster #eeats -SB #syracuseu
#LoveWhereYouWork was one of the many lessons we learned during the Race, Gender, and Media class field trip to Twitter. This is one of my favorite classes this semester, as we get to explore identity and the importance of understanding a diverse media audience. #tbt to our many amazing class trips including @tbwachiatny @spotify and @vice and all our amazing hosts there! -SB #SyracuseU
Another amazing speaking event! Last night we got to hear from @newhousesu alumna @lisastylewatch . Lisa shared her story of how she gained confidence in her professional career, leading her to her current role as editor of @stylewatchmag . As a BDJ major, I love hearing from media professionals outside of broadcast to enhance my understanding of their side of the industry. I loved hearing her explain the magazine’s new design and innovation. I can’t believe my semester with @newhousenyc is almost over, but I sure have enjoyed all these amazing learning experiences and opportunities! -SB #syracuseu
New York City is known for being fast-paced, and balancing school, work, and life can get chaotic. That’s why I love to find places in the city where I can roam on a nice day. My office is right near Lincoln Center. Known for housing the American Ballet, Lincoln Center can be very lively on weekend nights, but in the mornings and afternoons, it’s pretty quiet. I left early this morning so I would be able to take a few minutes to just enjoy the warm weather here. On rainy or cold days, exercise and shopping are my preferred stress-relievers – and trust me, there’s plenty of both in the city! Thanks for letting me share my week with you! Can’t wait to return to @syracuseu next fall! Signing off -SB #SyracuseU
