Alum Success

The LSSU Dance program has provided me with excellent opportunities I could not have received at any other university. My ultimate career goal is to obtain a Clinical Doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology and find alternative forms of communication with my patients. The dance program has allowed me to choreograph and produce works of art that incorporated sign language as well as work with children of all ages. Because of these opportunities I am well prepared for my future goals and am set apart from other students in a very competitive field.
