Sarah

(she/her/hers)

I come from Burbank, CA.

I speak English.

Clubs/groups you are involved in on-campus: Phi Sigma Sigma, MORIA, and 7500 Magazine

Favorite courses: I’ve enjoyed all my courses so far, but MORIA and Digital Journalism (7500 Magazine) have been particularly fun.

I chose to attend Woodbury University because My passion in life is writing, so it was excellent when I found out that Woodbury offers such a unique major that focuses purely on writing as a career. I also love the smaller campus, it is a special experience as it really allows one to form close friendships and gain greater mentorship from professors.

Evelyna
Game Design + Professional Writing (Class of 2021)

Evelyna

(she/her/hers)

I come from Burbank, CA.

I speak English, Armenian, and a bit of Spanish.

Clubs/groups you are involved in on-campus: I’m the Treasurer of the Woodbury Arts Association.

Favorite courses: I’ve enjoyed a lot of my game classes for teaching me a lot of new skills, especially the ones that focus on programming. However, ANIM 204 Layout and GAME 323 Story Interactive are some of my top favorites I’ve taken since I feel like they’ve nurtured my art and writing skills the most.

Favorite Spot on campus and why:  It would probably have to be the little patio area behind the Writing Center. It’s a charming, quiet spot that many people don’t stumble upon, so it’s a nice place to sit by one of the benches and do work. Or you can just enjoy the nature!

Hobbies/interests:  I love drawing and illustrating. It’s always acted as a springboard for me to express myself, so it’s an interest of mine I strive to constantly improve in. Also I love playing any kinds of games: board games, video games — you name it! I’m always willing to give something a try.

I chose to attend Woodbury University because I liked how well put together the Game Design curriculum was. I genuinely felt like there was a nice balance of infusing an interdisciplinary versus specialized approach to the classes, so I foresaw coming out of Woodbury with a balanced and marketable skill set. Short commute time was definitely a nice bonus as well.
