The Secrets Behind Facebook, Twitter and your Digital Identity 

Students spend more time on Facebook than in class. In just five years, online social sites have grew bigger than TV. Along with massive growth came predators, identity theft, wasted time, destroyed reputations, and hacked machines. A “city” with 1 billion people has its dangers, but it also has incredible opportunities. With 70% of employers prescreening applicants based on digital identities, learn how to get ahead by leveraging your digital identity to your advantage both in school, as a student leader, and out of school, for your career.

Reggae Band Anthem

 Spanning decades and cultures, the six members of Anthem combine boundless energy and diverse musical influences to showcase their own brand of reggae on their debut CD on Mack Avenue Records.

Their Jamaican heritage is the seed from which their reggae roots spread, but each of the various members also adds his own experience and influences to the mix
