If you’re interested in a semester (fall, spring, summer) internship with Madison Square Garden, the Sport Management and Media Department is hosting an informational session on Thursday (12/4) at 12:15 p.m. in Hill Center G-64.

Per an Ithaca College Intercom announcement:

“Kerline Batista (Sport Media ’16) published her research on the consequences of parental absences from children’s participation in sports.

Batista read over 30 articles and book chapters in the process of writing this editorial, documenting that parental presence at children’s sporting events is an important vehicle for family bonding. And yet, many parents labor in jobs that do not provide for the types of flexibility that make this possible. This work was performed in Stephen Sweet’s sociology course ‘Work and Family.’”

Congrats, Kerline!
