Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Theatre Program

Mattea Pierce

Name: Mattea Pierce
Major: Theatre and Graphic Design
Hometown: Mobile, Ala.
Fact: I collect rubber ducks and put them in my car!

I chose to come to Belhaven because... of their accreditation in all of the arts. It is especially helpful since I am a double major in Graphic Design and Acting to know that I am getting the best education I possibly can for both areas.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... The seniors during my Freshman year were always there to make sure I felt welcome and seen, and were never afraid to step up as a leader and a role model. They have introduced me to a lot of the friends I have now, and I hope that one day I will be able to be that person for my future classmates. The faculty has always been open to listening to my thoughts and concerns, and they care about the students' personal well-being as well as their education. 

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I believe I will be able to head out into the world with a strong foundation in acting, as well as be well-rounded enough to take on other theatre related jobs, even if they aren’t specifically performing. 

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Blessing
