Experiences at Annual Entertainment and Marketing Exchange



Students talking to industry professionals.

The Seton Hall men’s basketball team’s first game of the season was held at Prudential
Center on November 6th. Before the 70-59 win against St. Peter’s University, there
was excitement amongst students, alumni, and industry professionals at the Annual
Entertainment & Marketing Network Exchange.

On the ride to the Prudential Center, students shared their enthusiasm for the event
and discussed what they were looking forward to getting from the experience. Hanna
