Written by Leryn Turlington

1. Being surrounded by friends every minute of the day.

2. A free gym and three dance classes a week.

3. Free practice rooms.

4. Voice lessons that don’t take away from grocery money.

5. Having class instead of a 9 to 5.

6. Having one place to call home for four years.

7. Wearing a backpack and no one mistaking you for a high schooler.

8. Having scenes to rehearse.

9. 24-hour coffee shops and libraries.

10. Being surrounded by nerds who love theatre as much as you do.
