    NYU: Remember ALL of your 2020 graduates!

    This is a plea to #NYU and #NYUSteinhardt in particular to include Fall 2019 and Jan 2020 graduates in your communications and plans for celebrating the only #commencement activities the university provides (in May). I completed my #Master’s in Steinhardt’s Vocal Performance program in Fall 2019 (degree conferred in Jan 2020).

This makes me feel like I don’t matter. I’m…
