Student and Alumni News

If you’re interested in auditioning, please speak with your Macaulay advisor, director, or a friend. Students should be prepared to read a draft of their three-minute speech in front a small, supportive group of Macaulay staff.

To audition, students should:

  1. Secure your nomination.
  2. Contact Cameron Stewart at cameron.stewart@mhc.cuny.edu to schedule an in-person audition on either March 29th (10am-12pm) or March 30th (2pm-4pm) at the Macaulay Building (35 West 67th Street). In your email, please include: full name, campus and who is supporting your nomination.
  3. Write a draft of your speech. The draft—three minutes in length—should in some way reflect your college experience. In the past, winning speeches have blended the personal and the public with confident prose and specificity.

If you have any questions, please email: cameron.stewart@mhc.cuny.edu

To ensure time for editing and revision by graduation, students interested in speaking should be available to meet at least twice with Cam before mid-May.
