Learning extends beyond the walls of the classroom. A strong education requires an integration of both experiential and classroom learning options. I was honored to participate in a one-of-a-kind experiential learning opportunity during the 2024 New York Fashion Week! I felt very well prepared to take on this journey, and I returned with an overwhelming amount of knowledge to apply in the classroom.
I was selected to represent West Virginia University at U of NYFW, a program for college students interested in learning more about Fashion Week, thanks to WVU's Brand and Trademark Licensing department. 27 students and 18 universities took on New York City with one common interest: a love for fashion and retail.
