As part of the ongoing series, “Holy Cross On the Road” traveled this fall to New York City to showcase the best of the College’s arts programs. Local high school students interested in applying to Holy Cross, along with parents, teachers and New York-area alumni saw firsthand the work of current students and heard directly from alumni and faculty about the lasting value of a Holy Cross education. Guests also had the opportunity to meet Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., College president and faculty from the departments of theatre, music, and visual arts.
The multifaceted event, which took place in Bennack Theatre at the Paley Center for Media, included:
