Chart Your Own Course
While New York City can spoil you with its international cachet, there are other great world cities to immerse yourself in. MMC offers a number of study abroad programs that transport you beyond the five boroughs of NYC. Does Paris entice you? What about London? Perhaps Greece or Italy? Choose your location and open yourself to cultural discovery and global perspectives.
“I’ve been part of so many organizations because being a student leader means helping other student leaders,” she quips.“ At MMC, I was involved in diverse extracurricular activities on campus, including serving as the President of the Student Government Association (SGA); Treasurer of Unbranded (Fashion Marketing Association); Vice- President of Global Citizen Society; Cultural Peer Mentor and Peer Leader for the NYC Seminar.”Brenelle Braganza ’19
MMC allowed me to become a well-rounded theater artist. I was able to take courses in every aspect of theater, plus the liberal arts, and without that, I would not be running two theater companies today. The skills I learned at MMC have given me the confidence that’s necessary to succeed in theatre.Leigh Berenis ’13

I feel pretty lucky that I am still doing today what I pursued when I was 18! In college, I had numerous internships assisting artists, working at printing studios, and even photographing for an online clothing company. After college, I worked at a portrait studio in Manhattan’s Upper East Side before relocating to the West Coast.Lindsay Kreighbaum ’12
Interning with the artist Wood-Brown was an experience that I will always cherish. I assisted Jo in preparing her lecture circuits, a group exhibit at The Painting Center, and a panel discussion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I feel fortunate to have developed an understanding of the artist’s perspective through this internship.Aileen Marcantonio ’09
Class of 2009, Major in Art History
Attending MMC was one of the best decisions I have ever made, as it opened doors such as being offered a summer job at Mouse Ceramic Studio in Brooklyn, teaching ceramics to children. The guidance I received from my professors also helped me get into Bank Street Graduate School of Education, my top choice graduate school. Marymount Manhattan is an amazing school with so many opportunities for students and I’m so happy that I now get to call myself an MMC Alum!Adriana Kunstenaar ’19
