In retrospect

When I first started getting involved in the theater program at Emory, I was surprised at how tightknit and supportive the community was. The professors are spectacular and really want you to succeed both academically and professionally. There's a vibrant student theater program which gives students the opportunity to direct, design, stage manage, and act; and Theater at Emory allows students to perform alongside and learn from professionals. There's so much opportunity here that it's easy to overcommit yourself, which I was definitely guilty of.
