What I Like About Revelle
I love the fine arts requirement! I think that it is such an important component of the Renaissance scholar; it balances out the hard sciences and math by exercising the right brain. The versatility of the fine arts requirement is what I particularly adore. I love to paint and draw and have been doing dip pen and brush calligraphy since I was a kid, but for my fine arts requirement, I did Gospel Choir, which was a big step out of the box for me. My voice had been previously reserved for the shower and road trips, but it was such a fun way of exploring new mediums of art and new parts of myself!
Honestly, it’s the people. I feel so grateful and honored to have worked with such genuine and talented individuals who have very honestly changed my life. Revellians have been my mentors, advisors and friends, guiding and teaching me how to be a stronger, kinder, and happier individual.
