Luisa Maria Garcia
School of Arts & Sciences
Major: Communication Arts
Class of 2014

My professors have had a great impact on my life as a student in the past year. With their help, I have really developed my writing skills, and my abilities in front of a camera.

In the story of the ant and the grasshopper, Luisa Maria Garcia SAS’14 would play the ant, toiling in the summer to prosper in the winter. She applied for the prestigious Carlozzi Family Scholarship during her senior year of high school, because she “saw it as a way to get professional development, mentoring, and financial support.”

Luisa was awarded the Scholarship at the New York Women in Communications Matrix Awards luncheon on April 11, 2011. The luncheon, which was held at the Waldorf=Astoria, featured speakers such as Rosie O'Donnell, Idina Menzel, Arianna Huffington, Sheryl Sandberg, and Gwen Ifill.

The Scholarship was created in 2008 and is awarded to an undergraduate who is an accomplished writer. The scholarship provides opportunities for professional development and mentoring as well as financial support.

Luisa, a day student at The College of New Rochelle, attended Francis Lewis High School in Queens. She is now a sophomore, studying communication arts with a focus on broadcasting and print media.

While she is sure about her education, she is keeping her future open. “Right now, I’m planning on continuing my studies and getting a master's in communications,” she said. “In the long run, I want to work for a news station, but really, I’m open to almost anything.”

Her favorite part of being a student at CNR is “the small class sizes, which allow the professors to have a more direct interaction with the students.”

“All my professors have been great,” she said. “They have had a great impact in my life as a student in the past year. With their help, I have really developed my writing skills, and my abilities in front of a camera.”
