|   Community News

Rose McCaffrey, former Mayoral Intern and American International College (AIC) graduate starred in the hit TV series, The College Tour, which highlights students attending college and why they decided to attend college. Ten students, including Rose, spoke highly of AIC and how the college helped to prepare them for their future.

Rose McCaffrey focused her segment on how well AIC helped her to prepare for her future career. "I am excited for future employers to watch this video showcasing my school and me. It beautifully captures the passion I have for things that I love while displaying my skillset and the transformative impact that AIC has had on my journey,” she said.

McCaffrey is a triple-major senior, studying political science, public relations, and media communications. Before she graduated in May, McCaffrey had already jumpstarted her career with several internships, including those in the gubernatorial campaign of now-Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey, and the office of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. In fact, much of Rose’s segment was filmed at Springfield City Hall, including inside Mayor Sarno’s office.

Mayor Sarno states, “We are all so proud of Springfield’s own Rose McCaffrey.  She is a very talented, smart, and drive professional with a bright future a head of her.  She did an excellent job while interning in my office and always strived to be supportive and help our residents.  Her passion and dedication to advance her career and learn both in and out of the classroom is commendable.  All of us here at the Mayor’s Office wish her continued success in all of her future endeavors.”    

In the program, AIC learners, ranging from first-year undergrads to graduate students, come together to share their personal stories as members of the AIC community, encompassing academics, athletics, campus life, student organizations, and the sense of belonging that AIC cultivates.  For more information and to watch all nine episodes, including Rose’s segment, please visit and watch the streaming video on AIC's website
