Thank You Letters

Kate Riotte

Program of Emphasis: Museum Fine Art Studies

Hometown: Durham, CT

High School: Coginchaug Regional High Sch

Why I chose to attend Juniata: I chose to attend Juniata College for the Museum Studies program available and for the study abroad opportunities provided. Small class size, potential for the creation of an individualized 'POE,' and a scholarship were also endearing factors that aided my choice to attend Juniata College.

Clubs and Organizations: Running Club member

Internship: I was involved with a placement at the New Schoolhouse Gallery in York, England During the Spring of 2013. I assisted in setting up for and taking down exhibitions, gallery opening evenings, invigilation, and general gallery duties.

Travels Abroad: I studied abroad in York, England, for the academic year of 2012-2013. I studied fine arts whilst at York St. John University, growing as a person through my experience. I was involved in the creation of art in a manner much more contemporary than I had been exposed to at Juniata College. I was part of the athletics team and drama society, had the brilliant experience of competing in athletics competitions, running a marathon in Liverpool, visiting Germany, and studying in Italy whilst abroad.

Most Interesting Class: The most interesting class I have taken this year would be either Critical and Cultural Theory, Women in Art, or History of Food. Such classes gave me perspective. What I learned in these lectures I found pertinent to me as an individual.

Favorite Faculty Member: Faculty members that have made a difference in my life have been Professor Rosell and Mr. Wilkins. Professor Rosell has been inspiring in her enthusiasm for art and support of her students. Mr. Wilkins has been supportive in my study abroad and writing experiences. He has encouraged me in my writing, a venue I so desire exploring.
