Cheyenne Watson, SUNY University at Albany
CSI Salutatorian 2022
Cheyenne Watson (English, Creative Writing '22) will attend SUNY University at Albany to pursue a Masters in Information Science with a concentration in Archives and Record Management. She aspires to become a novelist and work with antique books. Cheyenne took two independent studies during her time at CSI — the first to further develop her first novella, The Transformation, and the second to explore her fascination with the Goth counterculture. Her time at CSI and the Macaulay Honors College intensified her love of the arts, spurring internships at the Brooklyn Museum as a Special Events Intern and later a History Archives Intern at the Staten Island Museum through CUNY Cultural Corps. This summer, she will continue to work at the Staten Island Museum as an Archives Associate Intern and write.
Justin Peterkin, University of Maryland
Justin Peterkin (Physics and Mathematics ’21) will attend University of Maryland to pursue a PhD in Physics this fall. He is interested in condensed matter theory and in the properties of novel and exotic materials. Justin conducted undergrad Physics research at CSI, was a member of AstroCom NYC and did an NSF REU with Stony Brook University. This summer, he will intern with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) within their Physical & Computational Sciences Directorate, through the GEM Program.
Marco Costanza, University of Michigan Medical School
Marco Costanza ’19, a first-generation and former Macaulay Honors College student, has been making quite an impact at the University of Michigan Medical School, after earning a BS in Psychology and Spanish at CSI, where he conducted research on income inequality and both cardiac and mental health.
At U-M Medical School, Costanza has been awarded a Dean’s Scholarship, which provides him with the full cost of attendance for his MD and prospective MBA. Similar to his time at CSI, Marco has been heavily involved in many mentorship, DEI (diversity/equity/inclusion), and human rights endeavors.
He currently sits on the executive board of LANAMA (Latin American Native American Medical Association) as the chapter’s Admission’s Ambassador and Co-social chair with goals of increasing Latinx representation among the student body, mentoring Latinx undergraduate students at U-M, and fostering community among his classmates and undertaking community action campaigns.
