Extracurricular Activities: I’m in a TV program called MCTV. I participate in a new club they just opened up called Red Fox Film Productions, where you can produce your own films. I’m also on Club Fencing.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
Each of them has had a relatively big impact on my experience, each in a different way. Fencing has helped push me through difficult classes and teaches me to give it your all because you’ll never know what’ll happen. The Marist Television Club and the Red Fox Film Club have taught me new things about film and production that I never knew. The majority of my experience was strictly studio based.
Do you do research? If so, how easy was it to get involved in the research?
It was easy for me to get involved in it. When I first came to Marist, I was nervous about being in a whole new environment. Overall, getting involved in everything wasn’t too hard.
