Meet Our Students

Students at Carroll are offered a very personalized experience; tailoring their academic program to their skills, interests, and the fields that they would like to grow in. Carroll students are encouraged to expand their current skill set beyond what they already are comfortable in; actors trying technical aspects, technicians designing, it's your choice when you come to Carroll.

Computer Science(M)/Theatre(M)

Connor is a junior from Denver, Colorado. He decided to attend Carroll to pursue a degree in Computer Science. Becoming involved in the student one act plays Short Not Sweet soon led to Connor trying lighting design and theatre tech. Connor's diverse interest led him to try everything: designing lights for Harvey, performing in The Laramie Project, costume design for She Persisted,  and asst. light design and board op for The Little Mermaid. Discovering that he enjoyed all of it, Connor declared a second major and was set on the Master Electrician path for the Flex Theatre, the role he will be filling this coming year.

I took Nancy Harper's Acting 101 my freshmen year and was hooked; professors that really know you, fellow thesbians who treat you like family, really make theatre at Carroll feel all inclusive. You will come to find you have skills you didn't know you had in fields you didn't know you were interested in and you will have the full support and simultneous freedom to persue them.

Connor's involvement at Carroll doesn't stop with CS and theatre, proving the busiest people can be involved in the arts. He was a Community Advisor in Guadalupe Hall, a Student Building Manager in the campus apartments, plays in the Pep Band and Drumline, and works for IT as a Student Aid in Technology (SAINT).

Try out for the part, our directors have a sixth sense for identifying strengths and will find a part that fits your schedule and fits YOU.

Communications(M)/Theatre(m)/Computer Science(m)

Warren is a sophomore from Moscow Idaho.  After graduating from Moscow High school where he was head of auditorium tech and video yearbook, he came to Carroll college where he quickly became involved with the Flex Theatre.

 

 It was very nice the way that everyone was so welcoming to me and are happy to have me on board as well as just how pleasant people were.

By the end of his first semester he adopted many of the responsibilities of Sound Designer and designed for She Persisted, and has since designed sound for The Laramie Project and The Little Mermaid, and served as Assistant Light Designer for Laramie.

My experience in Laramie was that I was excited to see people's reaction to it, it certainly was really refreshing seeing people react the way they did.

Outside of the Flex Theatre, Warren has had the opportunity to work on several independent film sets; he has been the grip/gaff as well as the boom operator for the short films Ebb & Flo and Evie & Seth, both directed by Stephen Alan Seder.
