Summer Q&A: Recent Alumni from the Class of 2014

Now that the summer is well underway, we reached out to a few recent Arts and Science alumni from the class of 2014 to see what they are up to.

Anna Silman 

What did you study while you were at NYU?
I did a masters in journalism with a focus in magazine writing.

Name a moment during your time as a graduate student that stands out as being most memorable or something you are most proud of. 
For me, the best part of studying at the journalism school was getting to hear so many amazing guest speakers like Tom Wolfe, Jill Abramson, Emily Nussbaum, Chuck Klosterman and David Remnick, among others. I also got to hear Andrew Solomon speak about his newest book, Far From the Tree, which was really exciting because he's one of my favorite writers.
