Admission

Sarah Weyrich

  • Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Major: Music Theatre
  • Minor:  Dance and Spanish
  • Campus Involvement: Drama at Boys and Girls Club, Usher at Fine Arts Center (FAC), and Voyager.
  • Why I chose VU: I initially looked at Viterbo because I was accepted into their Music Theatre Program. I have always wanted a school that made me feel like I was a part of a family, and as soon as I stepped foot on campus I knew this was the place where I belonged. Viterbo made me feel like I had a home away from home.
  • How's the food? There are a lot of great options at the Caf, and it is always fun to create and try new things with the food. There are other good options outside of the Caf at Einstein's and the POD.  My favorite meal is Quesadillas from Steve in the Caf!
  • Favorite place on campus and why? I love the Assisi Courtyard during the Fall and Spring; it is a great place to sit outside, relax, do homework, or whatever you want. In the winter, I love hanging out in the FAC because you can always find a cozy to hang out and distress.
  • Favorite place or thing to do in La Crosse? My favorite place is the Root Note in downtown La Crosse. It is the cutest coffee shop where you can listen to music, play trivia, or enjoy some great coffee/tea and food. I also love to take walks by the river or go visit the Bluffs.
  • Advice for prospective students conducting their college search? My advice for you is to just relax and not stress, ultimately you will find the place you are meant to be. Also, ask questions; this is your future!
  • Career aspirations? I hope to be a working actress and share my experiences with others on the stage. I want to help inspire people through theatre, just as it has inspired me.
  • Anything else? Have fun with this process. Enjoy the places and colleges you get to see, and don't be scared to put yourself out there!
