Class Rank:


Musical Theatre major, minors in Dance and Arts Administration


Frederick, MD

Why did you choose to attend WVU?

I really enjoyed how kind and helpful everyone was on my audition day! I liked that there was enough room in the program to have multiple minors as well as add many elective classes to focus on what you wanted to focus on.

What do you like about your major and your WVU experience?

I love getting to work in all aspects of theatre. Although I’m a Musical Theatre major I’ve been able to work study in the scene shop and have a lot of experience with carpentry there. I really love the faculty and how they continuously push us to do our best.

What advice would you give to prospective students considering attending WVU's College of Creative Arts?

Just have fun! The college audition and selection experience can be very nerve racking, but it can also be a lot of fun.

What do you hope to accomplish as an ambassador of the CCA?

To make current and prospective students feel welcome to both the program and the university as a whole!

Do you participate in any clubs or organizations?

I’m Vice President of the Theatre Student Organization as well as a member of the Student Dance Association!
