Student Profile

Jessica Prihoda, Superior WI

Major: Digital Cinema

"Our Digital Cinema program at UW-Superior is very unique. You get to create several short films throughout your college career and even have the opportunity to screen them in front of a live audience. Because of the smaller class sizes, you get access to professional equipment and facilities without much competition. In addition, you also get to work closely with an incredibly talented and knowledgeable group of professors and other students as you all help one another in the difficult, yet rewarding process of making short films."
