Driving to UCONN was the most nerve racking, intense car drive of all time. I'm usually an outgoing person, but entering such a huge, beautiful campus transformed me into one little shy guy. UCONN staff welcomed me with warm smiles as I checked into my dorms. Strangers around my age welcomed me with sweet "Hellos" and big smiles as well… The RAs were so outgoing and made sure everyone was comfortable and just made the program so organized and safe. The professors in the Drama Program cared a lot about what our passion was and how we can contribute to the arts as a scholar. I remember my classmates and I every morning singing Hamilton songs while walking through Mirror Lake to get to class. These people made me learn new things about myself.
