BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Briarcliff High School alum Emma Flihan recently offered her playwriting insight to current drama and film students and discussed how her work at the high school helped land her a spot in New York Univeristy's Tisch School.

Flihan, now a junior at NYU, said her application to the program wasn’t initially planned.

“I decided to apply to Tisch last minute,” Flihan said during her visit. “I used my plays from the Drama Club here at BHS as my portfolio in my application.”

Flihan also spoke with students about her experiences working at the Tribeca Film Festival, reviewing off-Broadway shows, stage-managing and writing. Her work as a member of the Drama Club was just one way she was involved with the arts in Briarcliff.
