"I knew that I wanted to attend a school with a strong art program so I considered other schools that were closer to home, like SUNY Albany, Saint Rose, and Skidmore. When I visited CNR for the first time, I was able to meet some of the faculty members and see the campus. I felt welcome here and came away with a great impression. "

Where are you from, Sarah?

I am from the small town of Waterford, which is located in upstate New York.


How did you hear about CNR?

 I first heard about CNR through a catalogue they sent me in the mail.


What other colleges did you consider and why did you pick CNR?

I knew that I wanted to attend a school with a strong art program so I considered other schools that were closer to home, like SUNY Albany, Saint Rose, and Skidmore. When I visited CNR for the first time, I was able to meet some of the faculty members and see the campus. I felt welcome here and came away with a great impression.


What do you think is special about the College?

The College places an emphasis on a strong sense of community, which I felt was unsurpassed by any of the other colleges that I visited. Everyone in the community consistently works to develop a supportive environment that is conducive to living and learning together as students.


What is your major?

I am working toward a double major in Art History and Women’s Studies with a minor in Studio Art.


Tell us about some of your favorite professors.

My favorite professors, of which there are many, always make themselves available to students and offer help with any academic concerns or conflicts. The small student-to-faculty ratio allows for close relationships with professors, who continually encourage and inspire us in our academic pursuits. In my opinion, these mentor relationships provide the basis for the academic excellence that CNR upholds year after year.


What clubs or organizations are you involved with as a student?

 In the past I have been involved with Phoenix art and literary magazine and the Student Theatre Ensemble. I have also had the pleasure of serving on the Honors Board and becoming a student representative to the Women’s Studies Committee.


Do you go into New York City?

The close proximity of New York City is one of the College’s greatest assets, particularly because regular visits and class trips enhance so much of the class material. Being an Art History major here allows me access to a huge amount of famous and rare artworks housed within a number of museums and galleries in the City. Every field trip I’ve taken with any of the departments has definitely broadened my understanding of the subject matter invaluably.


Do you have a job on campus?

There are a number of job opportunities available on campus, and I’ve had two jobs throughout my years here.  All of the employers on campus are sensitive to students who may have limited time in their schedules, and the work environments are very pleasant and accommodating.  

 

What do you plan to do when you graduate?

After I graduate I plan to take some time off from school and work in my field, perhaps at a museum or gallery in New York City. Eventually I would like to attend graduate school and possibly become a professor myself.
