On May 14 I graduated from the University of Maine (UMaine) with a Bachelor of Arts in Music! I learned a great deal in my classes, and through participation in ensembles. I had the opportunity to use these skills in my music internship at St. Paul the Apostle Parish. I now have a solid foundation of music knowledge that I can build on in the coming years.
Because I already have an undergraduate degree in mathematics from the University of Delaware, I only had to take music courses to get my UMaine degree. I completed the music course requirements in five semesters.
The UMaine professors and my fellow students were very supportive of me, even though I am not a traditional college student.
The day of graduation, the School of Performing Arts hosted a graduation breakfast reception at the University Club. So, not only do we get to see our professors and fellow graduates, we get to campus early so it is easy to get a parking spot!
