This isn't the way we wanted to go but we all worked very hard to get to this moment. Don't forget about everything you've accomplished during your time at SCSU.

Favorite Time at SCSU

My favorite times at SCSU were when I worked on productions with the SCSU Theatre Department. Doing shows is a hands-on learning experience no matter what your position is and I learned so much every time I worked on a show.

What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

I am going to miss all of the amazing people I've met at Southern. I will, of course, stay in touch with my friends regularly. However, I will miss seeing everyone every day.

Advice to Incoming Students

Don't be afraid to put your foot in at the very beginning. I almost didn't audition for my first show at SCSU (The Boy Friend '16) because it was on the first day of classes. I don't know where I would be today if I hadn't just gone for it. Because of that experience, so many doors have opened for me during my time at college such being Secretary for the Crescent Players for three years.
