“Because of my experience at BYU, I knew how to dive in, work hard and simply try. It opened my eyes to new career possibilities, and I was offered a job because of it. When we challenge ourselves to do the things we are most afraid of, we can grow in ways we never imagined.”

“My intro to PR class started me on the path to finding my passion. My team and I had put in countless hours on our project and the end product was a phenomenal success. After working with these amazing people and having so much fun with our project, I knew this was the type of work I wanted to do for the rest of my life!”

“As I look back to my freshman year in 2014 and relive the past six years, I am filled with such incredible gratitude. BYU is where I have found the things that are most important to me. I found a future career that I love, a deeper connection to my Savior, friends and professors that changed my life, the man I will spend the rest of eternity with and I learned how to be a better ally to the people around me. These pictures were taken in NYC where I was part of a team that worked on a campaign dedicated to increasing diversity at BYU. I felt that it was a cumulation of all that I learned in my program and taught me about how to not only be a better communicator but also how to be a better disciple of Christ.”

“My victory today is that I love who I am. This year I have become a graduate in the BYU class of 2020! BYU has given me so much more than a bachelor’s degree. The lessons I have learned, the people I have met, the places I have travelled, and the memories I have made will stay with me long into the eternities. I entered to learn and am ecstatic to go forth and serve!”

“I loved the media arts program! The projects I worked on involved everything from making mountains of French toast to handling a live chicken. No project was ever the same, and I'm so grateful for the experiences I had in this program. I made so many friends and so many memories, and I am so grateful to the faculty for how supportive they are and for all the unique opportunities we have in the program.”

“One of the most fulfilling experiences I had at BYU was performing with @byutheatreballet and @dancensemblebyu .Practicing in the studio for hours everyday is where I’ve learned the most about myself. When it’s late in the evening and you have exams and homework to worry about, it’s the love of your art that keeps you focused. When you’re in the studio, you’re not only trying to perfect choreography for your own accomplishment, but also hoping to perform in a way that gives the audience the best experience possible. Dance truly is a beautiful way to share joy, and the audience deserves your best presentation of that. As I would meet audience members following performances, it was rewarding to see the happiness in their faces. I’m so grateful that I got to share my love of dance while performing with BYU!”

Rebecca Wing ( @rebeccaleighwing ), graduating senior in the BFA Acting major shares this memory:
.
“One fall afternoon in my acting classics class, we were workshopping one of our Shakespearean scenes. I wasn't in the scene, but I was observing the instruction and rehearsal along with the rest of the class. Our instructor, Adam Houghton, suggested that it might help the actors if we provided some background music. Almost instantly — and completely in sync — we came together in beautiful rendition of Strauss's "The Blue Danube." Needless to say, the music provided just the inspiration the actors needed for their scene.”
