Alumni get-togethers offer far more than finger foods and a dose of nostalgia. In Baltimore last year, Alina Predescu, Bus '13 (Cert), '17 (MBA), helped organize a screening of Hidden Figures followed by a discussion that included guest Kenneth Sembach, director of the Space Telescope Science Institute. And in October, Nate Hughes, SPH '12 (MPH), gathered San Francisco Bay Area–based doctors, musicians, and a local nonprofit to discuss the links connecting music, memory, and healing.
In 2013, before Melissa DeRosa ’04, MPA ’09, came on board as communications director for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, she got a memorable call from her future boss. “Are you ready for this?” he asked, as she recalls. “Because you’re standing in the batter’s box, and the pitches are going to come at your head at 100 miles an hour. You’re basically going from the minors to the majors.”DeRosa thought the governor was exaggerating. After all, she’d had plenty of experience with tough jobs.
Most weekdays, for seven hours a day, Eric Hwang can be found hard at work in an unassuming building in Skokie, Illinois, bent over a block of wood with a chisel in hand, surrounded by knives, planes, rulers and other tools of his newly adopted trade. He’s in the final stretch of a full-time, three-year course of study at the Chicago School of Violin Making (CSVM), where he’s learning to build string instruments based on centuries-old techniques by masters such as those in the Stradivari family.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
