Why did you decide to attend West Chester University?
West Chester felt like the perfect place for me! I loved the size of the campus and the atmosphere of the Theatre Department specifically. Plus, I love that it is located close to major cities!

What is your favorite thing about the Department of Theatre and Dance?
I love that students have the opportunity to learn about every aspect of theatre in a hands-on way. Even though I am a Musical Theatre Concentration, I enjoy working with hair and makeup and publicity. I also love that you have a LOT of performance opportunities. Whether it is a show from the season or just a scene from class, there is always something to work on!

What didn't you know about the Department of Theatre and Dance before you came to WCU?
I didn't know how closely the faculty worked with the students. The faculty always has our best interest in mind and they want to see us grow as artists. I had no idea how many connections I would make through the faculty, and how much I would rely on them in my college career.

What do you plan to do after graduation?
That is a big question to answer, however I have always wanted to perform on a cruise ship and tour the world. Another goal of mine is to create a theatre camp for children with special needs!

What would you like to tell students considering WCU or the Department of Theatre and Dance?
Take every opportunity and use it to grow, but never be afraid to ask for help when you need it!
