Find Your Edge

  • I found myself excited by the class sizes and the opportunity to really make a difference within the community. Dr. Mary Fleischer was integral to my experience at MMC. I got to work with her throughout my years at Marymount and really felt like I made a difference in my major. Her History of New Media class furthered my passion for experimental theater and the January course Experimental Theater was just the icing on the cake.

  • Studying abroad through the Umbra Institute taught me about appreciating a rich and thriving culture of food, music, and art. To me Perugia was more than just a place of learning, it was a home.

    Major: Graphic Design and Communication and Media Arts

  • Taking classes within the Arts Management minor, such as The History of Museums and Collections, complemented my majors in Art and Art History and assisted me in discovering how to employ my knowledge and skills while working in various cultural institutions throughout New York. In fact, the invaluable experiences gave me the confidence necessary to succeed in my role as an Administrative Intern at the Queens Historical Society during my last semester at MMC.

    Jillian Banks ’20

    Class of 2020, Major in Art History and Art (double concentration in Studio Art and Graphic Design), Minor in Arts Management and Chemistry

  • The Sociology program helped me understand that social issues are socially experienced and socially produced even though as a society we tend to blame individuals.

    Jennifer Fecu ’21

    Class of 2021, Sociology minor

  • MMC’s Fashion Marketing concentration seemed like exactly what I was looking for in a major. After getting to MMC, I never doubted that I made the right choice. I am so grateful for MMC, the city, and the friends I made here. I wouldn’t have traded the experience for anything and I feel confident and well-equipped to go out and make things happen for myself.

💜Hello #Classof2026! We asked first-years like @victorpascucci4 what they’re looking forward to as they start MMC. Check the link in our bio for the full story! Name: Victor Pascucci (he/they) Hometown: I’m from Chicago but was raised in San Antonio. 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? A: I want to be a professional actor, go on to do TV and film, and most importantly, be on stage. So I’m most excited about the theatre program because it lets me do what I love more than anything in my favorite city on Earth. 🤗Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? A: One fun fact about me is that I got to host my own musical theatre concert before coming to college. I did it as my senior project in high school—they let us take time off from our academic courses to pursue a passion project. It took a lot of work to write a show, book the venue (I used my old middle school), and manage ticket sales. But the weeks of planning and rehearsing paid off, and the final product was everything I could ask for. I’d never felt prouder and happier in my entire life. It forced me to be very vulnerable onstage, and I’ll forever be grateful for the experience. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? To simply enjoy it because you’re only young once. #nyccollege #Griffins #MMCProud

💜Hello #Classof2026! We asked first-years like @karakokolakis what they’re looking forward to as they start MMC. Check the link in our bio for the full story! Name: Kara Kokolakis (she/her) Hometown: Long Island, New York 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? Getting to be a part of the incredibly welcoming community! 🥴What are you the most nervous about? I’m mostly nervous about living in a new area and having to make that adjustment. 😎What’re your career ambitions? I’d love to teach theatre to aspiring performers! 🤗Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? I did Greek dance for most of my life. Greek dance includes a variety of different dances, with each island of Greece having its own traditional one. Everyone joins together in a group to perform them. That’s what makes them so special—everyone is together in that moment, and you find family in what may be just a group of strangers because you all share the same love and soul. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? That all the other first-year students are also in a new place, so you have a lot of people to work with and find your way with! #nyccollege #Griffins #MMCProud

💜Hello #Classof2026! We asked first-years like @nisamonae what they’re looking forward to as they start MMC. Check the link in our bio for the full story! Name: Nisa Tatum (she/they) Hometown: Baltimore, but my dad was in the military until I was 10, so I’ve lived in plenty of other places, including Hawaii and North Carolina. 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? A: The new environment and being able to dance in the city! 😎What are your career ambitions? A: When I first started dancing, my family was low-income compared to my classmates. I was jealous of kids who’d grown up going to dance conventions because my family couldn’t afford it until I was about nine. I don’t want kids to feel like they have to pay thousands of dollars to train, so my goal is to start a dance convention organization for families like mine. I would love to also dance on Broadway, for an NBA team, or on a cruise! I want to be able to share my art with others. 🤗Can you share an interesting/weird/fun fact about yourself? A: My fun fact is I’ve seen every episode of Criminal Minds five times! I honestly could quote every episode. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? A: To get a mattress topper. I love sleeping so much! #Nyccollege #Griffins #MMCProud

Name: Anna Belden (she/her) Hometown: Saratoga, New York 🥰What excites you most about starting MMC? A: I plan to work as an actor, director, producer, and writer in theatre, film, and television. I’m excited to spend my time learning about these incredible subjects with creative people who share the same passion for them. 🥴What are you most nervous about? A: I’m nervous about living in New York City, but I’m even more excited about all it has to offer! 🤗Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? A: I write (nearly) everything in cursive! I broke my hand in gym class when I was 14, and it became easier to write exclusively in cursive with a cast on. I’ve stuck with it ever since. 🧐What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? A: To get to know as many fellow students as possible!

I’m kind of directionally challenged! ✨Tell us about your career ambitions! A: I plan on working in the nonprofit/social justice sector. My ultimate goal is to use my voice to inspire change and aid disadvantaged communities. ✨Can you share one interesting/weird/funny fact about yourself? A: An interesting fact about me is I took my first ever ballet class four years ago, and now I’m majoring in it! ✨What’s the best piece of advice you’ve heard about starting college? A: It’s not about what you know but who you know, meaning the connections you make in your chosen field could greatly increase your job mobility and post-graduation opportunities. Building my professional network is one of my goals at MMC. #nyccollege #freshmen #firstyear #Griffins #MMCProud

#FlashbackFriday! Shout out to all the first-year Griffins who did our college readiness program CityEdge Jump Start this summer! They took Professor Susan Behrens’s course New Yawk Tawk, traveling to different neighborhoods for a linguistic landscaping of the city’s many dialects and languages. They ended the class last month by presenting the linguistic profiles in a pop-up museum. Here are a few of the students on a trip to the Met and an ice cream run. 📸 Pictured: Sydney Cullen, Patti Suarez, Nick Coscarart, Isa Lopez, and Kalie Lomeli #nyccollege #GoGriffins
