I came to the U of L because it offers a unique program in digital audio arts, which combines theoretical, creative and technical aspects. I found lots of other opportunities including the Shure competition, Joyce and Ron Sakamoto Award, internships, and extracurricular opportunities that furthered my education in a practical environment. We also conducted original research, where we independently explored and applied principles in a creative and technical environment.”
