Meet the 2020-2021 Benjamin Family Social Media Fellows!
We are excited to announce that the next group of Benjamin Family Social Media Fellows has been selected out of a very talented pool of students. These five students will lead the brand of PCSB forward and learn a lot along the way.
This year’s fellows worked hard to raise the bar across all platforms by elevating the type of content, targeting specific audiences with paid advertising, and creating more awareness around the fellowship program as well. We know that the PCSB brand is in good hands with the next team.

As a marketing major with a finance minor, Caroline is excited to join the people behind the scenes of PCSB’s social media accounts. She sees the fellowship as a unique opportunity to gain marketing experience while sharing how much the business school has to offer its students.
