Touro College Liberal Arts and Science
David Edelman, a graduate of Touro College Liberal Arts and Science Menís Division in Flatbush, communicated some of his thoughts and suggestions during the course of our interview.
David graduated from Torah Vodaath High School in Brooklyn. After graduating from high school, he enrolled at Touro College Menís Division in Flatbush to continue his secular education in the evenings, while continuing his Judaic studies at Darkei Noam during the daytime.
When David entered Touro in 1997, his major was Accounting. However during the course of his studies, he changed his major to Political Science and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree at the end of May 2000. At present, Davidís interests are business and finance.
While interviewing David, he referred to the following:
I chose Touro College because it met my needs of being able to continue my Judaic studies while attending an accredited College that was conveniently located. I felt comfortable in the small friendly atmosphere of Touro. Although many of my lecturers were inspirational and quite qualified, I would, however, especially like to thank Professor Alan Mond, Rabbi Abraham Stern, Professor Shammai Bienenstock and Professor Norman Bertram for their guidance and assistance.
David referred several recommendations to Touro College, which he felt would enhance future student life and working skills:
- Offer additional courses in writing and interview skills for continued studies and the work force.
- Forward exit survey forms prior to graduation.
- Offer guidance in career placement.
- Offer seminars in financial areas on a continuous basis.
- Present a yearbook to the graduates.
As an alumnus of Touro College, David would like to extend his best wishes to its present graduates.
