Three Baruch alumni siblings at the 2019 commencement
Melissa (’14, MA ’19), Justin (’19), and Eileen (’17, MSEd ’19) Makak at Commencement 2019.

The Family Makak had a lot to celebrate at Commencement 2019 as siblings Melissa, Eileen, and Justin earned their Baruch degrees, each representing one of the College’s three schools. Oldest sibling Melissa graduated from the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences with an MA in mental health counseling; Eileen, from the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs with an MSEd in higher education administration; and Justin, the youngest, from the Zicklin School of Business with a BBA in computer information systems. Both Melissa and Eileen previously earned an undergraduate degree from Weissman—so as of this June, the three Makak siblings have earned five Baruch degrees among them!
