One Piece Of Advice  

"Digital media is about capturing life and life doesn't always go the way you plan. If you go into the class with an open mind and accept the twists and turns that might arise you'll really be able to get a lot out of it."

What Surprised You About This Major?  
"I was surprised to see the variety of people in the major. In a lot of the majors at Kutz, the participants usually have one major aspect that ties them all together: the songleaders love playing music or singing, the youth group leadership kids want to be better leaders within their youth groups, the mitzvah corps kids are social advocates, etc. But in digital media, all of the participants had different hobbies, goals, and ideas about what they wanted from the major, which made for a very interesting dynamic within the group."

In Their Own Words  

"I chose to take digital media because I wanted to create something tangible and lasting to mark my time at Kutz.
