What impact has theater had on your experience?
I was a theater kid in high school, as I feel most people who do theater in college were. The theater department in my high school was very cliquey, and I don’t feel that way about the department here because Reed is so small that every club or arts department gets really tight-knit and it’s hard to exclude people because the school is so small. I also think that people don’t want to exclude anybody. So, the way I talk about theater at Reed is similar to how many other people talk about their club, it’s a positive experience in that I can meet a lot of great people and have a community. It’s hard to do an extracurricular here and no do it full on because there are so many things to do and so few people, so everything has its own little section.
