Running For: Alumni Council

Mariam Cantelmi, AR’95

Campaign Statement

Cooper Union has had a profound impact on the course of my professional and personal life. My ties to Cooper run deep through all three schools. I served on the student council while a student and still now believe in the importance of staying engaged with the Cooper Community. I support our new Alumni at the End of Year show and remain active socially with my fellow Cooper graduates at official and unofficial alumni events. I look forward to giving my effort to help increase Alumni involvement across all three Schools.  


Mariam began as a student in the Engineering School and soon realized that Architecture was perhaps her greater strength.  She successfully transferred to the Architecture School and graduated in ‘95. Along this path, she met her future husband Frank, a Cooper engineer. Mariam is a licensed Architect in NY and NJ who has worked as a project manager in corporate and retail interiors for 20 years.
