Bulldog Basics for Brooklyn College Students
Here is your go-to guide to Brooklyn College Remote Services! From Academic Advisement to Commencement, all of the contact information of anyone you might need to reach out to for support at Brooklyn College.
Connect with BC Acting Students and Other Creatives on Brooklyn Backstage!
Through the collaboration of Feirstein and the Brooklyn College Dept. of Theater, the brand-new Brooklyn Backstage is now available for Brooklyn College Students! The service will connect BFA & MFA Acting Students in the Theater Department with Feirstein Students looking for actors and collaborators.
In addition to collaborating on Feirstein student projects, the Brooklyn College Dept. of Theater is looking for filmmakers to collaborate on their projects in development. Projects include virtual theater plays with film components, industry showreels, and more!
You can sign-up now (free membership required). If you have any questions about using the site and connecting with actors, Professor and Head of Acting, BFA Program Patrick Sabongui is more than happy to assist.

2) Magner Center hosted several Zoom sessions throughout the summer with industry professionals including a Theater Director/Playwright, a Spectrum News NY1 Reporter, a movie producer, an NBC Page and more!!
We also wanted to highlight the Magner Center YouTube SVMPA playlist, since it could be a great resource for you to feature on social media or website showcasing employers, experienced alumni as well as recent graduates.
Students can view video clips from these sessions as well as access additional career resources via the SVMPA Newsletter: https://tinyurl.com/svmpa-newsletter. We also developed an SVMPA Career Action Plan against Covid-19 with skills students should be developing during the pandemic in addition to industry resources: https://tinyurl.com/svmpaactionplan.
