- NESCom and Apple will team up on May 2nd to work with students from over 40 schools for Cool 2 Career 2014!
Cool 2 Career - May 2nd, 2014
From Cool2Career @ The New England School of Communications of Husson University Through their access to Apple devices, students across Maine have rich access to digital production studios for audio (GarageBand - Mac - iOS), video (iMovie - Mac - iOS), and still imagery (iPhoto - Mac - iOS). Students from across Maine are making great movies and plugging their electric guitars into their MacBook Air or iPad to record and mix their own songs or covers. Student photographers are collecting, editing, and sharing their still image portfolios with friends and families. And then there are the young people who love to program. Whether they are learning how to create iOS apps, writing code, or working in an object oriented environment to design a game, these kids love the challenge of complex problems. And you know what, the Maine students that are doing these things are having fun. But what if a seventh grader or a high school junior began to think that these things they now are doing for fun can, in fact, be the beginning of a pathway to a career. What if these creative students began to see that they can chart a pathway from cool to career? On May 2, 2014 please plan on coming to NESCom and learn how you can move your enjoyment of video and audio production or digital imagery forward and begin to see yourself on a pathway from "Cool2Career!" Meanwhile, take a look at the cool digital stuff going on at NESCom, and begin to think about what you might get a chance to do on this exciting day.

The New England School of
Communications® prepares students for careers in the broad field of
communications. We educate students in the applied technology and
content consistent with the platforms that they will be using in their
professions. Our instruction is designed to give students not only the
critical knowledge but also the technical skills they will need to be
successful in their chosen careers.
Statement of Core Values
The faculty, staff and administration of NESCom® share these values in pursuing our educational mission.
Career preparation is a primary focus to better prepare our students for the first day of work.
Technology is of extreme importance in the communications industry and we strive to train students with equipment and software that is currently in use.
A strong work ethic and sense of humility are important characteristics that will help our students to be successful in the work force.
Educating our students across a variety of media platforms broadens students’ abilities and allows them a wider range of future opportunities.
Creativity and problem solving capabilities, crucial in our college environment and in the communications industry, are taught and modeled by faculty.
Students are offered early and frequent opportunities to practice the knowledge and skills learned.
Delivering value to our students for the tuition they pay is an obligation our school takes seriously.
Accepting students from a broad range of academic, economic and cultural backgrounds and giving them a fair opportunity to succeed enriches not only the life of our students but also the college.
The New England School of Communications and Husson University are committed to fostering a community which values diversity, ethical and social responsibility and an environment in which students can participate in the free and civil exchange of ideas. As part of that commitment, NESCom and Husson prohibit illegal discrimination or harassment against any member of its community on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital or parental status, veteran status or any other status protected by law in matters of admissions, educational programs, housing, campus activities or other services they deliver. Retaliation against any individual who raises a good faith claim or cooperates within an investigation of such a claim is also a violation of this policy.
The move proved to be temporary as the School grew rapidly. In 1985, NESB moved to a facility on the campus of Husson College and continued to grow by providing housing, dining, a gymnasium and other campus amenities.
In 1997, NESCom® merged with Husson College and became a wholly owned subsidiary. In 2001, a new Communication Center was established for the school with a new wing added in 2004. In 2008 Husson College became Husson University. The 140 acre campus at Husson University is an attractive setting for the NESCom® program.
