Why Bryant?  

I chose Bryant because I felt a sense of belonging as soon as I stepped onto campus.

How did you choose digital communication as a major? 

I always had a feeling that I wanted to do something within production. When I originally chose Bryant, I was a psychology major. I quickly made the switch when I found out they offered digital communication. 

Any peak learning moments? 

My favorite project was for my Global Foundations of Character and Leadership class. Every week we had a presentation to deliver, and being able to get imaginative with what we presented brought out my inner creativity.

Tell us more about your minors.

I am a double minor: marketing and professional and creative writing. I want to go into studio production, so having marketing and writing experience will help. 

Any advice for students considering Bryant? 

Bryant may be known for business, but there are many arts and sciences programs that will take you where you want to go.

How are you involved with the arts on campus? 

I’m in the Chamber Ensemble, Pep Band, and soon will be joining the Creative Writing Club and the Arts and Creativity Club. They allow me to have expressive thoughts and an appreciation for the arts.

Do you have a favorite place to hang out? 

When I’m not in my room hanging out with friends, I’m relaxing in Fisher Student Center or out by the pond on a nice day.

Any advice for new Bulldogs?

Enjoy your time here. College will be your home away from home for the next four years. Work hard, but also take it easy and appreciate how far you’ve come.

A Connected Community

Bryant's purposeful student life delivers co-curricular immersion with an inspiring, collegial community. Students forge deep connections that last a lifetime.

“I'm really passionate about equality and equity, and I want to help people find common ground, especially at a time when there's so much division. I want to be a voice for people who have no voice.”

“Leadership and innovation stood out to me for how it might help me in the future, with learning how to adapt. It was a unique degree and drew me in.”

"When I was looking at the research interests of the professors I would be studying under, I was really impressed that an institution known for business had such a talented politics and law faculty."
