Name: Caitlin Ryerson
Year you’ll be graduating: Class of 2023
I am majoring in Art because when I was High School I was interested in photography. Taking photography classes helped me realize I want to continue along that path in college. I don’t see myself sitting behind a desk working for someone, instead I can see myself achieving other goals and going to new places through photography. I want to show people that you can do amazing things with a photography degree.
The kinds of things that inspire me are my parents. They push me to do more as a person and as a photographer. And also Photographers I follow on social media from small business photographers to National Geographic Photographers.
My favorite class so far was Art history. I have never taken an Art history class before and learning about art and an artist was really interesting and fun. It was a different side of art I hadn’t seen before.
When I’m not in class I’m in the learning commons studying for class, out with friends, out adventuring, or taking pictures!
The coolest thing I’ve done so far was going to the MET in NYC. Ive never been to the MET and it was interesting to see so many art works that I learned in art history and other works of art and artifacts that I have not seen before.
When I graduate I plan to build my small photography business now to something bigger. I hope travel around the world photographing.
I’d recommend the Art program at Marywood because the professors are wonderful! Each person you meet there helps you to achieve your goals and help you get your self out there not only a person but as an artist.
