One thing I really like about being an education major here at Gannon is that you have the opportunity to begin fieldwork as early as your freshman year.

One thing I really liked was that I was able to voice-track a show in advance so I could fit this into my schedule. […]

Going to College Without Your High School Best Friend

It’s tough; the person that was always there with you in school to get you through the good and bad times isn’t there anymore. I was really worried when I chose a different university than my best friend. How would I live without her to complain to for the next four years? Granted, we each […]

White Snake: (One of) My Last Shows at Gannon

I cannot say this is my last show at Gannon as a student as I will be here for an extra semester, but this is one of them (depending on how hectic student teaching is). This semester, I was an acolyte and in the ensemble for Mary Zimmerman’s “White Snake.” This was the show where my […]
