Past Student Director Quotes

Gaby Flores: “The meetings may not be the most exciting thing in the world, but that environment can help a lot if you intend to pursue a career in any kind of art. It prepared me for coordinating group projects in university and generally eased my anxiety about interacting with people outside of my age group as a whole”

Deja Dougals: “Being a Student Director is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in your community, meet and receive mentoring from creative individuals, and develop your skills as an artist and creator!”
