Student Profiles

Our students come from all walks of life, but share one common goal -- to build upon their skills, knowledge, and career options through higher learning. Here's what some of our current students have to say about their experiences at CUNY SPS.

Jessica Cortez

Jessica Cortez

MA in Applied Theater

"I decided to double major in theatre [in college] because I saw it as a platform that I could use to talk about those issues, and really dive into social narratives, and express people’s stories that aren’t typically told."

Baly Cooley

RN to BS Nursing

"I learned that rather than being a liability, my age was a blessing, as my work ethic, professionalism, and ability to self-manage were vital to my success at going to school and working simultaneously."

Patrycja Golinska

MS in Business Management and Leadership

"Get to know the people in your classes even though you don’t physically see them every day; don’t underestimate how much you might need each other’s support along the way."

Bonaparte Pierre

BS in Health Services Administration

"In terms of impact, the degree will eventually help me to get work in greater and more complex facilities."

Alan Kok

Advanced Certificate in Project Management

"To me, the field of project management is more than just being a robot and getting from point A to point B. It’s building those relationships so you can get the project completed quickly and effectively."
