Why SAU?: SAU just seemed like a good fit for me. I really liked the small class size and there were great opportunities for both Nursing and Theatre.
Favorite SAU Experience: "Oedipus Rex." Bringing a show to KCACTF in Ames, IA was unbelieveabe. The whole process was really a great experience that I am really proud of.
Dream Job: Flight Nurse
Favorite Actor/Actress: Philip Seymour Hoffman
Advice for Freshmen and Transfer Students: Just try different things. There are a lot of opportunities here to develop technichal and artistic skills such as directing, costume design, set design, lighting design, stage management, props, and acting. Don't limit yourself to just one skill. Get to know Cory, Dan, Kris, Dianne and all the faculty. They are a wealth of information, and I owe them many thanks for everything I have learned.
Post-Graduation Plans: I plan to apply for a an ER Nursing position in the Quad Cities after I pass my boards this summer. I plan to pursue acting, and stay involved in the theatre community throughout my life.
