Caroline McFarland is an Entertainment and Arts Management major at Drexel University. Originally from New Jersey, she spent her childhood exploring Manhattan and Brooklyn, where her parents grew up – but she decided to discover a new city by attending college in Philadelphia. Since then, she feels as though Philadelphia has become a second home.
Caroline spent the majority of her high school career as an editor for her school newspaper. Intending to go into the journalism field, she started as a Communications major at Drexel, only to discover the Entertainment and Arts Management program by December of her freshman year. She switched her major and has not looked back since.
As a Drexel Community Scholar, Caroline has held internships with CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia, PhillyCAM, and the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). She also obtained co-ops at Laughing Buddha Comedy in Manhattan, as well as the Philadelphia Film Society. With dreams of someday working for National Geographic, she intends to go to graduate school to pursue a master’s degree pertaining to the environment and culture.
Caroline is ecstatic to be a co-producer of TEDxDrexelU, and she believes this experience is the perfect culmination of her time here at Drexel. She is grateful for all of the support from her fellow team members, in addition to the support from Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and Drexel University.
