While the College is still firming up a specific date to hold the postponed commencement ceremony, it was important to the College’s leadership that our students’ achievements were honored properly. Both our graduating undergraduate and graduate students will have the opportunity to be recognized in September, the same month the College will celebrate its centennial.
Those who know Julia Gargano, a senior from Staten Island in the College’s music industry program, know she is humble and authentic. So, the College community was excited to see her make the Top 20 of “American Idol” on the April 5 show.
After performing Pink’s “Glitter in the Air,” the judges said all she needed was a hit song to win a Grammy (we think she’s written some), and that she will go a long way – maybe all the way – in the competition.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, “American Idol” top 20 contestants will perform from home during what would have been the live shows, still giving viewers a chance to vote for their favorites. The next episode airs April 26 at 8 p.m. on ABC, and you better believe we’re on #TeamJulia. Be sure to vote!
