Location was my #1 priority. I wanted to have a college experience not on a campus, but in a city with a plethora of real-world learning. I wanted a strong, creative, and progressive community inside of NYC. I needed to be able to walk outside and have endless opportunities available.
It was really important to me to be able to minor in dance so that I could have a creative outlet during my day filled with academics. There is no other school I would rather be attending and I am beyond excited to apply myself to all there is to offer next year.
I will leave Roycemore with a strong idea of being an individual and excitement about creating my own unique path in life. My January Short Term projects have given me that along with other great real-world learning experiences.
