I chose Marywood because I fell in love with the beautiful campus. Not only that, the people were so nice and welcoming here. It felt like a great place to be and the professors are all so kind and helpful. 

I am majoring in Art because I’ve always loved doing art since I was young. It definitely was my calling to help others be the best them, so after finding out that I can also do artwork and help others out was the best thing in the world.

When I’m not in class, I’m hanging out with my friends, doing more work for class, cheering, and going to the gym. I really love to explore, sit, and observe nature and the beautiful campus. 

So far, my favorite art class at Marywood was 2D Design because we got to do a lot of artwork that dealt with collages and making designs, which I love to do. It’s fun turning nothing into something and cutting up paper or magazines to make a collage.

The coolest thing I’ve done at Marywood so far was definitely going to goat yoga for family weekend last year. It was a lot of funny petting and holding the baby goats or having them walk on you while doing yoga. I love animals so much, especially baby ones they are so tiny and cute.

When I graduate from college I hope that I already have a job in line for my Art Therapy field. By this time I will be so happy to help more people and learn more about the greatness of living and art. I don’t know exactly where I will go but definitely God will guide me through it.

I’d recommend the Art program at Marywood because not only are the professors, chairs, and advisors kind and helpful they teach you great life lessons. They help you become a better artist and strive to your highest potential! Also you are allowed to express yourself and let your creative mind flow with great guidance and support. You can feel that this isn’t just a job to them, they truly care about you and want you to fully acquire your creative mind.
