Nina Davuluri, Miss America 2014, spoke at Syracuse University on Tuesday.

Although she is no longer the reining Miss America, Nina Davuluri continues to do the work.  The four pillars of the organization are: advocacy, scholarship, style and success. Davuluri says a lot of ladies want to be Miss America, but they don’t want the job.

Beyond encouraging women to pursue careers in STEM fields, she hopes to one day be a diplomat or ambassador.

Talk about role model for your daughter…

Duke won the NCAA title in men’s basketball earlier this week in Indianapolis. For SU fans who are still sore that the Orange didn’t participate in this year’s Big Dance, let us remind you of the school’s academic reputation. During last night’s 8th Annual Fashion & Beauty Communications Milestone show, the Newhouse School fielded a formidable, yet fashionable team of world-class journalism professors.

Take that Duke.

Writer, comedian, producer Jenny Yang goes in for laughs during a show at HBC Gifford Auditorium on Wednesday.

LA-based writer, comedian and producer Jenny Yang is not afraid to get up in your face for some laughs. She had a show at HBC Gifford Auditorium on Wednesday.

April Fools may be for amateurs, but Jenny Yang is a top flight pro when it comes to the comedy game. She visited Syracuse and put on a hilarious show that touched on topics such as “Fear of Dating White Guys,” “Yellow Fever,” “Decor/Asians,” Real Babies v. Food Babies” and her left swipe tendencies on Tinder.  Yang is currently on the road producing the Dis/Orient/ed Tour, and she was featured in the 2013 documentary Why We Laugh: Funny Women.  To us the only down side of her show was that it conflicted with an appearance on campus by Taraji P. Henson.

We hope Yang will return to do a few nights at the Funny Bone when her tour returns to the East Coast.

Yang has a show tonight at Swarthmore College.

Taraji P. Henson currently plays Cookie on the Fox drama Empire, which debuted January 7, 2015.

Here are some of the photos from Taraji P. Henson’s visit to Syracuse University. She talked about her work in films and television, particularly the success of her new show Empire and the fortitude it takes to pursue a career in show business. She said she’s had the most fun in her career so far on the film Talk to Me (the Petey Greene biopic).  Henson will host Saturday Night Live April 11.

Henson asked how many students in the audience wanted to run studios (versus merely acting and directing).

Humanitarian trumps Hollywood

Actor, humanist, Forest Whitaker visited Syracuse University on Wednesday.

Actor/social activist Forest Whitaker visited Syracuse University on Wednesday. Here he fields a question during a talk at Hendricks Chapel.

Despite the fact that has an Academy Award, Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award, Forest Whitaker may still be one of the most underrated actors of his generation.  The guy has always made an impression in film roles, such as Good Morning Vietnam, where he mixed-it up with Robin Williams to The Butler, where he embodied the class and stoic dignity of Cecil Gaines.  And who can forget his more lighthearted characters like Jefferson (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) and Jackson (A Rage in Harlem).  

To learn about Whitaker’s humanitarian work, check out this clip.
