My time at CSU was filled with endless reservoirs of creativity. Unlike other majors, CSU's Theatre Program is very hands-on and oftentimes we would be set free to explore and create to bring stories to life. The professors found ways to help expand the boundaries of art and the way we experience it, to cultivate an environment of acceptance and entertainment. I will be forever grateful for the professors who pushed me to grow and become the artist I am today.
