Theater Arts, '17
From a young age Castleton student Alexa Fryover knew she wanted to pursue a career in the arts. Now preparing to soon graduate with a degree in Theater Arts, she is looking forward to expanding upon that idea and exploring her professional options.
During her time at Castleton, Fryover was part of nine main stage productions and has assisted with several Black Box Theatre shows. One of her most fond memories includes traveling to London and participating in a class with a professional Shakespearean actor in the Globe Theatre.
Reflecting on her college career Fryover says the experiences she gaining through opportunities provided to her within the department have been priceless. Having worked closely with of the department faculty members over the years, she considers many of them an extended part of her family.
“Harry McEnerny has been my advisor since I got here and he’s helped me with everything I’ve come to him about,” said Fryover. “I’ve also met so many cool people, professionals from my field, and have had the opportunity to be critiqued by them which is incredibly helpful.”
Another valued resources for Fryover on campus has been the Director of Career Services, Renee Beaupre-White. In addition to serving as a mentor to Fryover, Beaupre-White has helped her to explore various career opportunities in a variety of potential fields.
“I will forever be thankful for her help,” said Fryover. “I’ll definitely remember the people. My friends who turned into family, and professors who turned into friends.”
