Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Dance Program

Marian Bayer, Dance major

Name: Marian Bayer
Major: Dance
Hometown: Houston, TX

I chose to come to Belhaven because... of the excellent caliber of the students who graduate. The job placement out of Belhaven is superb, especially with the current economic situation, particularly for artists. I haven’t yet come across a professor who is not totally and completely invested in their students, for their success.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... is the relationship with my freshman year RA.  It was extremely integral in my transition from high school to college. She helped me not only adjust to a new room and roommate, but also build me up in Christ. I knew I could always go to her if I needed prayer for something. We even had a weekly Bible study together. I credit her to how comfortable I feel on campus now as a sophomore.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I will be able to analyze art from a Christian perspective as well as be a responsible and resourceful leader in my generation. I will be thoroughly equipped to walk with confidence whatever path God has planned for me.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Comprehensive
