Why did you choose to attend WVU?
Because I am a local. I've always wanted to go to WVU, I've grown up basically on
top on the downtown campus, and eagerly awaited the time that I could be a part
What do you like about your major and your WVU experience?
I love my major because it is the most well rounded of the theatre majors. I can
do a little bit of everything, cultivate an extensive set of skills, and learn
which area of theatre my passion lies in. The WVU experience is spectacular. With
the parks, entertainment venues, restaurants, sports arenas, etc., there is no
shortage of these to do to enrich your life. I'm in multiple clubs, like the Swing
dance club, and even Student Government, where I am the Collegiate Representative
for the CCA. At WVU you can literally do anything and everything.
What advice would you give to prospective students considering attending WVU’s College of Creative Arts?
Be ready to expand your horizons. There are so many things to do and learn, that
you may discover a passion you never realized you had.
