Why SUNY Oneonta?

Honestly I think the distance – It’s close to home but not too close. When you're on campus there’s so much to do, you don't really get homesick, anyway!

My Activities

Mask and Hammer theatre club, public relations representative for Hulbert Hall, Apollo Music Club, O-Snap student Snapchat team

Best Experiences

My involvement in Mask and Hammer! Being assistant stage manager for “Disgraced” was nerve-wracking but exciting and so amazing. Definitely just making more and more friends with each club that I join.

Plans, Goals, Dreams

Anything in the theater or media world. I definitely want to look into directing and editing. My biggest dream would probably be working on a TV or movie set, either working behind the scenes or onstage – I love both realms. I want to be in that environment.

About My Major

I started out as a Adolescence Education major and switched to Media Studies and Theatre. Being able to make music videos and do all these cool projects – I love it so much. I’m so glad I made that change. I feel like everyone says you can change your major so many times and I never thought I would, but it’s so true. If I didn’t do that, I wouldn’t be as happy as I am today.

Favorite Class

It’s between Video Production and Acting I. There were a lot of different things I didn’t know about acting that I learned, and I thought that was really cool. But in Video Production, I’m making a music video, and that’s so awesome.
