The 2009 New Year brought an inaugural January Term – a three-week course based on various experiential learning opportunities.

Some Lynn students hit the slopes for the ESPN Winter X Games in Aspen, CO., where the class was paired with professionals in the field, including alumna Shannon Viard '93, who were responsible for organizing, marketing and executing the premier extreme winter sporting event. Alumnus Matthew Olivar '99 shared his expertise at a symposium on Microsoft Search Engine Advertising. Melissa Lallo '02 shared insight with budding entrepreneurs by judging student concepts for the “Making Your First Million” seminar.
