    Earlier this season, Kelly Amonte Hiller's women's lacrosse team learned the incredible power of the Northwestern University alumni network during a February road trip to Los Angeles. After landing at LAX, Amonte Hiller surprised the 'Cats with news that they would be visiting Creative Artists Agency (CAA), one of the world's most heralded talent agencies representing industry leaders in arts, entertainment and sports.

    Upon arriving in Hollywood, the Wildcats were met by NU alum and longtime CAA agent Jeff Jacobs for a behind-the-scenes tour of the agency's impressive grounds and offices. The 'Cats also had the opportunity to meet and chat with other young Northwestern alums now working at CAA to gain perspective on how to approach the transition from Evanston to a professional career in Los Angeles.

    Watch below as junior Christy Turner and freshman Lauren Murray recap NU's unique Hollywood experience.
