Jillian Youngblood, Director of Communications at Noodle, Gallatin '05
I think of Gallatin is NYU squared. There is a lot of guidance available and tons of resources; you just need to be really assertive in finding them and taking advantage of them. I found my Gallatin professors to be the ones who were most engaged in me as a student and as a person. They, especially my advisor and the professors on my colloquium panel, were incredibly supportive of my course of study, but also challenged me on my decisions in a way that was crucial. I knew a few people who engaged less actively with the Gallatin faculty and did just fine, but my advice to a Gallatin student would be: seek out guidance and you'll find it in abundance.
