WHY I CHOSE WES: 

Throughout my childhood and high school, I was very involved in musical theater and film. Therefore, when deciding on colleges to apply to, I had to decide whether I wanted a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program or a Bachelor of Arts (BA degree). Finally, I decided that I wanted a school that had amazing academics AND unbelievable arts. I also wanted to be close to a major city while still on a true campus in a small town. Wesleyan matched all my criteria perfectly. Plus, their commitment to diversity and equality was above and beyond any other school I looked at, which I loved… and still do! 

ACADEMIC
INTERESTS:

As I mentioned in the “Why I chose Wesleyan” section, I’ve known for a long time that I want to pursue musical theater and film professionally after I graduate college. However, I picked Wesleyan because I did not want to have to sacrifice my academics in order to receive an excellent arts education. Wesleyan allows me to grow and expand in both areas simultaneously. In addition to professional theater, I’ve always known that I want to be a teacher. The study of Sociology and the Education certificate will help me achieve that goal. 

FAVORITE CLASS:

My favorite class at Wesleyan so far has been Introduction to Sociology with Professor Greg Goldberg. He is such a dynamic and thrilling teacher, and I was completely intrigued and fascinated by the material. His class helped me discover my love for Sociology.

CAMPUS
ACTIVITIES:

Second Stage Theater Productions (2-3 per semester)
Sophomore Class Council 

 

WHY I CHOSE TO BE A TOUR GUIDE:
I’m a talker. I love to talk… But only about things I am passionate about. And I am very  passionate about this school and love getting to share my opinions with prospective families. I had such a rewarding experience being a tour guide at my high school, and am privileged to get to continue it on at Wesleyan.
