Muse Scholar Program welcomes Class of 2018, has full cohort for first time

With the arrival of the Class of 2018 this fall, the Muse Scholar Program achieved a milestone: For the first time, the program - founded in 2011 - can count freshmen through seniors among its ranks.

Scholars from all four classes had the chance to mingle this month at the annual Muse Scholar Meet & Greet luncheon, held in the Sylvia E. Fishman Student Center. Over pizza and drinks, the freshman Muses got to meet their fellow scholars while older students caught up after summer break.

Scholars also heard classmates speak about their experiences in various campus clubs and organizations. Joy Scanlon (Class of '15) talked about Cult. Magazine, the publication she helped found and now co-produces as Art Director. Sam Eng (Class of '16), handed out the latest issue of Hunted Hero comics magazine, for which he serves as Layout Designer and a regular contributor. Sandra Talbot (Class of '16) and Marie Coneys (Class of 2016) discussed their contributions to The Olivetree Review, Hunter's literary and art magazine. 

Scholars also learned about Hunter's Education Abroad program from Joy Ling (Class of '16), who studied Media and Computer Science at Queen Mary, University of London during the Spring 2014 semester.

"It was so exciting to have students from all four years at this year's Meet & Greet," said Muse Scholar Program Director Dara Meyers-Kingsley. "Because the Muse Scholar Program is a really vibrant community of students within Hunter, the positive energy in the room was palpable. So many smart, creative minds in one room; how could it not be invigorating?"
