We caught up with blogger and travel expert Tausha Cowan (CAS ’07) to find out her tips for planning vacations, booking summer travel, and balancing globetrotting adventures with a full-time job. She works in the Travel & Lifestyle Services department at American Express and has visited more than two dozen countries since she graduated from NYU.

What did you study at NYU?

I majored in Journalism and had minors in French and Africana Studies. I particularly enjoyed my Journalism classes because of my natural curiosity; it’s my inclination to ask questions. I also participated in the CAS Presidential Scholars program, which was a great experience. When I found out about the program, during a prospective student campus visit, I knew that NYU was where I wanted to go.

Some of my fondest memories of NYU are from the CAS Presidential Scholars trips and my study abroad experiences. I traveled to Florence my freshman year and to Prague my sophomore year. I also studied abroad in Paris for a summer and spent a semester in Ghana. I think very highly of the Scholars program, and I am still friends with several of my former classmates. I was also very involved in extracurriculars at NYU, especially the Academic Achievement Program (AAP).
