When you live in #NYC, you learn to watch where you step. 👀 But how long do certain pathogens persist—and are your shoes really tracking them inside? Biology alum Marjan Khan ’20 and Chemistry professor Alessandra Leri, Ph.D.,  recently published a study in the journal Indoor and Built Environment quantifying fecal pathogens on New York City sidewalks, on shoe soles and in the indoor environment. Among other things, they found very high numbers on indoor carpeted floors. Click the link in our bio to learn more. (And start leaving your shoes at the door if you don’t already!) 🔬🧫 #MMCProud #STEM #sciencemajor #science #NYC #UES #nyccollege #collegesearch

At MMC, you won’t just find your best friends for life—you’ll meet the folks you end up working with! That’s true for Rikki Ziegelman ’18 and Hayden Anderson ’17, co-founders of the theatre company @harptheatricals, and producers and playwrights Lee Harrison Daniel ’21 and Max Berry ’20, who are helping artists tell their stories through @firstkisstheatre. “Being yourself and building relationships that are meaningful to you on a personal level can naturally breed opportunities,” Anderson said.

We’re #MMCProud of alum Monet Hurst-Mendoza ’09, a playwright, director, and theatre producer. Her play Torera, which follows a Mexican woman training to become a matador, will have its world premiere at the venerated @AlleyTheatre in Houston this spring. And that’s just the start: Following a month-long run there, the play will be produced by Connecticut’s Long-Wharf Theatre. “I haven’t had a significant run of one of my works before, so I’m looking forward to seeing subsequent productions and how the play will evolve,” she said.

As we celebrate #MLKDay, we look to his late widow and a member of the MMC community, Coretta Scott King. Coretta received an honorary degree from Marymount Manhattan College in 1969; that same year, she sponsored the very first #MLKDay observance in Atlanta. She would go on to lead the 15-year fight to have Dr. King’s birthday recognized as a national holiday. Coretta was also a tireless champion of peace, justice, and human rights herself. A longtime advocate for LGBT rights, she noted in 1998 that “homophobic attitudes and policies were unjust and unworthy of a free society and must be opposed by all Americans who believe in democracy.” She died in 2006, but we still draw from her wisdom, including her reminder that “freedom is never really won; you earn it and win it in every generation.”  💙

    Ben draws upon deeply personal life experiences to create his colorful and complex contemporary paintings. “I want to visually convey Tibetan philosophical ideas in works that focus on current social, political, and cultural issues,” he says. “The notions of freedom, interdependence, and compassion are important in a time when many are rejecting our connectedness and focusing on differences.”
