What I Saw at a Columbia Protest

…The life of a Juilliard student is incredibly goal-oriented; it has to be in order for us to meet the standard imposed upon us by this world-class institution. But sometimes in our struggle for extreme technical proficiency and artistic excellence, we forget that we live in a diverse world full of people with totally different experiences and adversities than our own…

In Their Element

Earlier this year, WSJ. Magazine (of The Wall Street Journal) published a fashion spread featuring Juilliard students. At first, I appreciated the Magazine’s effort to photograph students from all departments and provide a window into student diversity.

“Who is White in Trump’s America?

By Michelle Geffner ’19: …what, exactly, does it mean to be “white”? Or more presently, what does it mean to be “white” in Trump’s America? All my twenty years, I’ve been told by other people how I look. Raised by a blue-eyed dad and obtaining a good deal of his genetic markers, I don’t resemble the poster child of a first generation Asian-American, although I am. I probably don’t evoke the image of a third generation Jewish-American, but I am.…

The Juilliard Black Student Union: A Vision Revived

My idea for starting the Juilliard Black Student Union arose out of the perceived need for a space for black students to consolidate and support one another in solidarity. I think it’s safe to say that at this point in our nation’s history, when across the country social activist groups like BlackLivesMatter are challenging the … Continue reading “The Juilliard Black Student Union: A Vision Revived”
