Comcast Cable has created and aired three new video interviews for February that highlight upcoming campus and community events, including the Hospitality Career Expo, L.A. Philharmonic Concert and Science Olympiad.
In one interview, Jerry Chesser, interim dean of The Collins School of Hospitality Management, discussed the upcoming Hospitality Career Expo on Feb. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. More than 50 leading firms are expected to be represented at the annual event. Chesser also highlighted the university's top-ranked hospitality program, which benefits from top-quality students and strong industry support.
Lisa Nashua, director of development for the College of Letters, Arts & Social Sciences, spoke about Feel the Music, a special regional performance by the Los Angeles Philharmonic on Feb. 26 at the First Baptist Church of Pomona. Through the support of local sponsors, including Cal Poly Pomona, tickets are available at the discount price of $5 each.
In another interview, Physics lecturer Nina Abramzon discussed the Los Angeles County Science Olympiad, a regional competition that will be held at Cal Poly Pomona for the third year on March 4. The Colleges of Science and Engineering, co-hosts of the event, are looking for volunteers to ensure the educational event runs smoothly. More than 900 children are expected to compete in this year's event, which encourages K-12 youths to apply science theory to practice in a fun environment.
The five-minute interviews are shown in conjunction with the local edition of the Comcast broadcast of CNN Headline News. The interviews are recorded each month in Claremont's Comcast studios and are featured throughout Southern California. Founded in 1963, Comcast Cable is the country's largest provider of cable services.
Instructional & Information Technology has made the video interviews available to the entire campus community.
