Originally from Durham, NC I lived in Australia for a number of years where I worked in International Education, and multicultural arts.

Erin M. Hanahan

Senior, Journalism (PR) with a minor in Dramatic Arts

I am an intern for the Office of the Executive Director of the Arts. I work most closely with Reed Colver, Director of Campus and Community Engagement. The position entails a number of responsibilities, one of my favorites being authoring for this blog. My career aspirations include Arts Administration, and working for the Office of the Executive Director for the Arts has given me the opportunity to explore that interest. I will be graduating in May of 2010 and look forward to further pursuing the professional arts field. I am the Student Representative for the Department of Dramatic Arts and will be directing for the LAB! Theatre this Fall. Performance is my first passion. I also enjoy art museums, writing, reading and desserts.
