“The Theatre Arts Department, the seasons, the classes, the students, and the faculty are responsible for starting me on my career path. The relationships I formed with the faculty and students there have become lifelong friendships. I did more in 4 years of undergrad than I ever could have imagined.”

“I now work as a designer, and I treasure memories of designing at Furman, but the first memory that comes to mind is the very last curtain call of the my last production as an actor in the playhouse. I remember very consciously trying to pay attention to that bittersweet moment, and store it up forever.”
