Patrick Macri, Founder and President of Millennium Communications, has been named for the second time to the Curriculum Advisory Committee for the Visual Communications Department at Farmingdale State College.
"Pat has a wealth of experience in the industry," said Allison Puff, Visual Communications Department Chairperson and Associate Professor at Farmingdale. "As president of Millennium Communications, he is someone who has always been on the cutting edge of digital technology and advertising. That knowledge helps us to shape the program so that it can stay out in front of the changes in technology and meet the demands of the ever-changing design industry. We have a constantly evolving curriculum at Farmingdale and input such as Pat's is vital to the success of our students and the program."
Today, the Curriculum Advisory Committee for the Visual Communications Department at Farmingdale State College is comprised of alumni and industry executives representing agencies, design firms and other businesses across Long Island and New York City. "The members of the Advisory Committee are all talented and creative people. Each of these individuals has an interest in sharing their passion with our students. We take advantage of the diverse backgrounds that they bring to the table to help shape the program and create a well-rounded and dynamic educational experience," explained Ms. Puff.
"I have always believed in giving back to the community," continued Mr. Macri. "I'm honored to be asked again by Farmingdale State College to serve in an advisory capacity, providing insights that can help the college evaluate its curriculum, make adjustments to existing courses and propose new ones...all with the goal of better preparing graduating students for successful careers in the visual communications field."
