Cameron Mitchell, YAA Alum ('15) and current Ithaca College sophomore

 

We are so proud of our YAA alumnus, Cameron Mitchell ('15). He was featured in PLAYBILL's recent article, "Dear Freshmen: Advice from Sophomore Theatre Majors to the Incoming Class," which interviewed students from some of the best known college theatre programs about their tips for a successful first year.

Here's what he had to say:

Breathe. Take your first year of a BFA program one step at a time. Remember that you are not only a theatre student but a college student, and that it is okay to have a balanced college experience. Think of sleep as your best friend. Mental health is just as important as physical health, and no matter how hard it gets, remember why you chose to be a theatre major in the first place.
