Three Bullet Points About You:

  • Since 2013, I have actively served on the CUAA’s Events Committee, serving as Co­Chair in 2014-­15, and elected VP of Alumni Events in the Spring of 2015.
  • I have participated in many events brought to our alumni and students by the CUAA, including the CUAA’s Annual Holiday Parties, CUAA@AllSouls, CUAA@McSorley’s, CUAA@190 Broadway, CUAA@Orientation/Peter Cooper Movie Night 2015, and the wonderfully successful Founder’s Day 2014 & 2015/Peter Cooper Block Party.
  • I have endeavored to remember that the object of life is to do good.’ ~Peter Cooper
    These are words I choose to live by, and why I continue to be an active member of the CUAA. It is worth it–this struggle to preserve The Cooper Union, for future generations.
