In her reflections on her student experience at RU Samantha shared, “I came from a big high school, in a big city, in an even bigger state, so it’s great to really feel like an individual”.

Samantha loves the atmosphere at RU. She appreciates all the one-on-one attention she receives from professors in her department and the overwhelming amount of opportunities she has received. She will soon be embarking on the adventure of a lifetime in August 2016 when she travels to Edinburgh, Scotland for the International Festival Fringe as the Performing Arts Department will be performing in an international arena. Additionally, she is working on career plans for after graduation. She recently attended a series of job interviews, related to her major, in Memphis, Tennessee. Samantha is excited about the adventures that await her after graduation. Congratulations, Samantha!
