I am a sophomore in the Dance Department, and I absolutely love it here! During my Freshman year, I made sure to participate in many activities especially those that were happening in the residence halls. I also had the great opportunity to participate in the Dance Department events including getting the chance to dance in the BFA show. As far as residence halls activities, I always loved participating in floor activities that were going on, such as, sleepovers or cooking parties because it was always a really great way to catch up with the people on my floor.
Moving to Seattle for college was also a very exciting move for me because it is such a great city with so much going on and so many cool places to visit. My favorite thing to do in Seattle would be to have out with my friends at Pike Place Market. It’s a fun way to get out and discover the city and also have a blast with your friends. And there’s lots of great food! Something else I absolutely love doing is going to watch Pacific Northwest Ballet performances because, as a dancer, it’s really important to experience dance shows.
My best piece of advice for new students would be to really get involved in fun activities around school because you meet really awesome friends doing so. I would also say to just be yourself when meeting new people because it is such and accepting and diverse school and everyone loves each other for whom they really are.
