Anya Cutter ’20 came to Reinhardt knowing only one friendly face, but the tiny but mighty musical theatre major found her own place in the spotlight.
Anya had been studying under Reinhardt professor of music and director of choral activities, Dr. Martha Shaw, since she was 10. “At first, I chose Reinhardt because of Dr. Shaw,” Anya recalls. “I visited and realized this was the perfect school for me. The small class sizes, the opportunity for stage time and major roles, and the success of the music program all drew me in.”
What she found at Reinhardt was a family — she even refers to faculty and staff as her “chill moms and dads” and students as her “brothers and sisters.”
“Everyone wants you to succeed. It’s college. It’s a time of development. They want to see you grow and you can really tell!”
Anya’s home away from home is one she recommends everyone come see — from the banks of Lake Mullenix and the grand Reinhardt University Theater to the coziness of the Admission House and the bustling newly expanded Gordy Dining Center, anyone can find a special spot on campus.
“Step on our beautiful campus and walk our streets. Go into The Falany and Flint Hall. Sit in a class,” she said. “It doesn’t take long to realize that Reinhardt has something special that not many other schools have.”
