Jeri Rayon graduated from Cabrini with the class of ’94 majoring in communications. Rayon made the transition from Cabrini into the work world with ease and great success. While at Cabrini, Rayon took advantage of the co-ops available. Her co-op was with WYSP radio station, which lead to her first job out of college. “I found it easier to find a job out of college because of the internship that I had a WYSP. Immediately after college I went to work at WYSP with a reference from Michael Troop from the co-op office and then on from there,” Rayon said.
Currently Rayon is Director of Alumni Affairs at Harcum College. “Cabrini provides a very well-rounded education. I am able to do many things,” Rayon said. Even though Rayon was a communications major she feels as though the multifaceted education she received has broadened her education and she is able to pursue many different avenues. She still is very active in the world of communications, with her background in radio but especially in the video and film industry, which was her concentration at Cabrini.
Rayon is still very active here at Cabrini. She is currently on the Alumni Executive Board. She has also kept in very close contact with fellow classmates and professors some of which are still on staff at Cabrini.
Rayon feels as though Cabrini has opened many doors for her. Specifically with the co-op but also with contacts that she received during her four years at Cabrini.
Not only did Rayon benefit from the worldly contacts at Cabrini, but also the close-knit family formed here. “I really love the fact that I am so close to my fellow classmates and also my former professors. It is very comforting to know that I can always call on one of my professors if I need a contact or help finding a job. I know they will be there. That is why I continue to be involved in Cabrini and will be in the future,” Rayon said.
