How would you describe the Tulane SoPA faculty and staff?
I would describe the staff as welcoming. On my first day, I felt confident that I made the right decision for myself based on how willing the staff was to make sure everything functioned properly and that all my needs were taken care of. The staff has also been really helpful in giving me all of the resources that I need to point me in the right direction. Whether it be providing financial aid phone numbers or quick responses to my emails, I get an overall vibe that my presence here is important.
What advice would you give to adult learners who are thinking about going back to school?
I would say go for it! If you are like me and have had doubts about going back to school and sitting in a traditional classroom, it beats learning by trial and error and time is going to pass anyway. There is nothing like being around other humans and learning. I've come to realize that you learn at a faster rate when you learn in a community setting.
You mentioned designing for social good. How will a Digital Design degree with a focus in Interactive Design help you meet your professional and personal goals?
I am currently a yoga teacher and studio manager at Magnolia Yoga Studio. We are a very diverse community. One of my main tasks is creating ads and promotional materials that speak to our demographic. This work has ignited me to push myself even further to really learn about digital design. I've come to understand that not only is it fun and creative work, but it's necessary!
