Art Student Carina D’Urso is Brooklyn College’s 2022 Valedictorian

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–It was almost four years ago that Carina D’Urso, a native Brooklynite and the daughter of Italian immigrants, first toured the Brooklyn College campus with her mother and maternal grandparents. At that moment, D’Urso foresaw the opportunities she could enjoy as a BC student, prompting her to apply to the school and start classes there during the fall 2018 semester as an art history major.

“I knew that as a commuter student, I could embrace New York City as my classroom – something that I’ve taken advantage of during my four years at BC,” D’Urso told The Vanguard. 

What D’Urso did not foresee, however, is that her hard work and dedication would earn her the honor of representing her graduating class as the valedictorian of the 2022 Brooklyn College Commencement at the Barclays Center on Tuesday, May 31.
