    Gabriella Carucci

    Senior Resident Advisor

    Gabby Carucci is a Music Major at Hunter College and is originally from Smithtown, NY, although she lived in Arizona for three years. Gabby is really into performing, musical theatre, and jazz. If you need recommendations for Broadway shows, Gabby’s the one to ask; she ushers for Broadway shows and has seen Hamilton over 100 times! Moving forward, she would like to learn about the various ways to communicate with her peers in a respectful manner while strengthening her leadership abilities. While in NYC, Gabby strongly suggests that you take advantage of the multiple free events and places in the city, like museums, Central Park, the High Line, and getting student rush tickets for Broadway shows.

    Yasmin Seweid

    Resident Advisor

    Yasmin Seweid is from New Hyde Park, NY and is a Political Science Major at Baruch College. When she’s not watching The Office or Deadpool on TV, she spends time writing, running, shopping, cooking, and baking. In addition to that Yasmin is working on her artistic side teaching herself how to play the guitar. Yasmin’s favorite things to do in NYC include exploring NYC looking for hidden gems, and spending time at museums. She suggests that you “go out as much as you can and do things that you aren't necessary comfortable with to figure out what you like and what you don't like.”

    Matt Benedict

    Resident Advisor

    Matt Benedict is a fourth year Psychology major studying at Pace University. He was born in Jacksonville, FL, and raised about two hours north in Hopewell Junction, NY. To relax in his free time, he loves to eat, cook, and play video games! One of his favorite things to do in NYC since moving to the Financial District two years ago is find new restaurants to try new kinds of food (his current favorite is Thai). Recently, Matt has become very interested in acquiring and caring for house plants, despite not having the best track record for keeping his plants alive. He says that if there is anything that makes a tiny NYC apartment feel more alive, nothing does it better than some flowers that you can care for and watch blossom.
