Name: Mary Virginia Mitchell

SH: Why did you decide to come to Brenau?

MV: GTA really won me over after watching a rehearsal. You could tell the faculty and students were welcoming and really cared for my success. When they said they were a family GTA meant it. 


SH: What are you involved in on campus?

MV: I’m involved in a lot on campus. I’m apart of the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honor Society, the Student Government Association, a sorority, PanHellenic executive board, and I was the past president of Alpha Lambda Delta Freshmen Honor Society.


SH: What is your favorite memory that you've had since coming to Brenau?

MV: One of my favorite members was probably when my mom showed up to surprise me when I ran out on Bid Day. 


SH: Who is your celebrity crush?

MV: I have so many, but I’m a HUGE fan of Eddie Redmayne he is so dreamy. But since he is married I think I will choose Matt Smith. I guess British actors are my type! If they ever read this feel free to look me up;)


SH: What are you plans when you graduate?

MV: I really do not have any plans yet. After graduation I hope to be working in a theatre, and making a difference. 

SH: What is a quote you live by?
