Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Theatre Program

CJ Riggs, Theatre Major

Name: C.J. Riggs
Major: Acting
Hometown: Tuscaloosa, Alabama

I chose to come to Belhaven because... I believe that God led me here and when I participated in freshman orientation, I just knew it was the best fit for me. Belhaven is another place I could call home.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... My best friend Morgan Hillman. She influenced me to take theatre more seriously and help me grow as an artist. For that I am forever grateful. I could not have wished for a better guide towards the betterment of my career in Theatre.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I will be able to understand, apply and explain all cylinders of work that goes into making a play production.
