Introducing ASAP's HESA Student of the Month for March: Cassie!
"I am currently a first-year full-time student in NYU’s Higher Education and Student Affairs program, and interning as the Student Life Coordinator at Steven’s Institute of Technology’s Office of Graduate Student Affairs. I was drawn to the program as it was the perfect mix of theory (class) and practice (internship and opportunities), allowing me to further develop as an engaged scholar. In my internship I work with graduate students- advising Graduate Student Council, Graduate Research Conference, clubs and organizations, coordinating Women’s Program, and assisting with orientation and commencement. I enjoy working with this population of students because it challenges me to find ways to intertwine academics and student affairs. Also, NYU’s HESA has provided me with opportunities to be reflective and contribute my voice to the student affairs community. Last month I was the graduate keynote speaker at the 2017 Student Affairs Conference at NYU, where I shared how the misspelling of my name has provided me the opportunity to better understand my Korean American social identity (my name is spelt Cassie but pronounced Casey)."
Cassie is a first-year, full-time graduate student in the program. Keep a look out for our HESA Student of the Month for April!

Introducing ASAP's HESA Student of the Month for December: Ryan Grubbs! Here is what Ryan wanted to share with you all about his experiences in the NYU HESA Masters Program so far:
"I started at NYU three years ago as the assistant for the Skirball Department of Hebrew & Judaic Studies. Before that, I was doing legal work as I figured out if law school was the right path for me. When I realized that my passion was not for the law but for working with colleges and universities, I made the transition into higher education. When I learned that graduate study in higher education was a possibility, and that NYU had such a program, I jumped at the chance to enroll. NYU's program in Higher Education and Student Affairs has been a great complement to my practice as a higher education professional; the coursework provides a theoretical foundation that supports my day-to-day work in my office. I have greatly enjoyed working and learning with my colleagues in the program—especially my fellow part-timers—and I benefit from their insights and contributions both in and out of the classroom."
Ryan is a second-year, part-time graduate student in the program. Keep a look out for our HESA Student of the Month for January!

Introducing ASAP's FIRST HESA Student of the Month: Tyese Medford! Here is what Tyese wanted to share with you all about her experiences in the NYU HESA Masters Program so far:
"I chose NYU's HESA program because of the curriculum and the many experiences that are offered to NYU students. Outside of those major factors, NYU has always been my DREAM school!
My favorite part of the program is having so many resources at my fingertips that are offered to help me be successful. Also just being in the city and experiencing not only everything NYU has to offer but everything the city has to offer!
My internship is great! I work in NYU's Residential Life and Housing Services as the Residential Life Assistant for Leadership Development and Student Staff Selection. I am able to work hands on with the executive board of the Inter-Residence Hall Council (IRHC), they are such an outstanding group of students. They plan such amazing events such as Flurry (Ice Skating Event in Central Park) which just passed. I am also able to help with student staff selection, and that is a great feeling in itself, helping to hire next years resident advisors. I truly love my internship it is fast paced most of the time, which I enjoy, and I am so glad that we choose one another!
My classes are great I am currently taking Internship Seminar, Foundations, and Campus Communities and Student Subcultures. I truly appreciate the experiences and knowledge that I am gaining from these courses."
Tyese is a first-year, first semester graduate student in the program. Keep a look out for our HESA Student of the Month for December!
