The Macaulay Experience
Student life is an important part of the Macaulay Honors College experience. CSI’s small group of MHC students are a close-knit, active group. In addition, they are part of the larger Macaulay community, and they participate in academic, professional, and social events and organizations with Scholars from the seven other campuses. Macaulay students see themselves as part of their campuses, the city, and the world.
Macaulay CSI student, Gil Barahman joins Governor Cuomor's "NY Stands with Puerto Rico Rebuilding and Recovery Trip"
Over two weeks on La Isla del Encanto, Puerto Rico, I learned much about myself and how much values could connect a group of people, and even a whole nation. In our group, common qualities were open-mindedness, selflessness, and friendliness. This enabled our cohort to form a very strong bond in a very short amount of time, and allowed us all to make the most of our experience through collaboration, support, and focus on the primary goal: helping Puerto Rico in the recovery and rebuilding effort.
