The News Asks: What Are You Doing This Summer?

As the semester draws to a close the News hit the streets to ask students what they had planned for the summer.

Ramon, Eugene Lang College, Writing

I’m going to be in the city, I’m going to get a job, and I’m going to be writing and shooting short films. They’re mainly comedies, and I’ll be acting in all of them, too.

Sarah, Jazz, Vocal Performance

I actually just got a summer job in the booking department of the Jazz Standard. I’m really excited! I’ll be working with the reservations and booking staff, learning how they bring bands in, and generally learning the ropes.

Lena, Eugene Lang College, Literary Studies

I have an internship at [Saturday Night Live producer] Broadway Video and I’m working for a woman who produces live comedy shows as well. I’ll also be acting in a student film.

George, NSPE, Environmental Studies

I’m graduating! I’m going to take a little time off between school and work, visit my family in L.A. and in Miami. And then I’m coming back to enjoy New York.

Conor and Jeremy, Parsons, Design and Technology

We were just talking about this! We’re going to write a graphic novel, something that’s hard-sci-fi, a near-future scenario that empathizes with the entire cognitive spectrum.

Bonus question: What’s with your hat? It’s called the Brain Cap. It goes with an app for Android that I built. The cap records your brainwaves, your electroencephalography (EEG), and time stamps the feed. You can then download your EEG output on your computer and see how your brain activity matches up to your moods or what you happened to be doing during the day.
