Why did you choose Comm Studies as your major?

For me, college was for learning how to think, not for learning specific skills that lead clearly to specific jobs. As a communications major, I studied architecture, anthropology, philosophy, law, art, religion, social theory, and yes, lots of media. Every corner of research you tap on uncovers a little piece of how the world works. I left communications an expert on none, but with a broader understanding of my universe and all the little universes that it runs into.

Favorite UCLA memory and/or professor:

Sleeping on the roof of Kerckhoff Hall

Significant Achievements:

My favorite LA memories are to have played at the Walt Disney Concert Hall with an orchestra (2011) and at the Greek Theater last year.
