“I was impressed with the facilities at Curry, especially the Television Studio in the Hirsh Communication Center, and was excited about the film and TV courses offered. I really enjoyed my film classes, in particular the digital film making class because it allowed us to get hands-on experience and work on our own film projects.”

In 2007, Andrew Graziano attended the Curry "Hollywood Productions: Up Close" class trip to Los Angeles. One of the stops during this week-long tour was to visit "The Price is Right" set at CBS in Studio City. Ironic, since Graziano now works on that very same studio lot as the Director of Video Operations and Video Products for CBS Interactive.
