I operate best when I’m doing a little bit of everything all at the same time. CCU was the perfect choice for me because it provides opportunities to pursue any and all passions to the nth degree. In addition to training in one of the top 25 BFA musical theatre programs in the country, I am pursuing a minor in creative writing, studying in the HTC Honors College, choreographing with the Dance Company, and leading a weird little club where we watch the Speed Racer movie every month. I even studied abroad in Italy with the music department this past summer. No other university offers a more rigorous, diverse and individualized path towards a creative career in the performing arts. I wake up each day excited to grow as an artist and as a human being, and couldn’t be more grateful to have found my #CCUFamily.
