As a Resident Advisor, I’ve gotten to connect with people from Italy, Sweden, the Czech Republic and so many more. I really don’t think I would have gotten these connections at any other college.

In the Twin Ports, UW-Superior’s Digital Cinema, a track within the Communicating Arts – Media concentration program, is unique to the area. Because of the smaller campus size and this particular area of study, UW-Superior has enticed students from all around to study here, including Megan McGarvey.  

 
“I knew studying film was what I wanted to do in college, so I compiled a list of schools offering that degree,” Megan said. “I heard that UW-Superior had a great Digital Cinema program, and once I visited campus, I loved it.” 
 
As a Digital Cinema major and Writing minor, Megan takes theories she’s learned and applies them to her work and everyday life. 
 
“I have the ability to troubleshoot and fix things when they go wrong. There’s always another way out,” she said. “I’ve learned from my mistakes, and I’ve improved. Thanks to the instructors, I never give up and strive to do better.” 
 
Not only has Megan found how to improve on her mistakes, but she’s also gained valuable, real world skills in the classroom.
 
“I had an internship with Channel 7 News in Wausau, Wis., and everything I had learned, I applied to working there,” said Megan. “I know I’ll be able to bring what I’m working on now into the future.” 
 
Along with gaining needed skills for the future, Megan believes that college is the time to meet and learn from as many people as you can. Even with a smaller campus, this belief has still held true for her while studying at UW-Superior.
 
“Our International Student program is incredible,” she said. “As a Resident Advisor, I’ve gotten to connect with people from Italy, Sweden, the Czech Republic and so many more. I really don’t think I would have gotten these connections at any other college.” 
 
As for the rest of campus, Megan can’t get enough of the tight-knit community that UW-Superior provides. 
 
“I can’t express enough how amazing the community aspect is on campus,” she explained. “I know everyone in some shape or form. You don’t miss out on relationships here, and you gain so many that you can use later in life.” 
 
Megan wants to become a film editor at a film production company after graduation. She loves what happens behind the scenes, especially getting the smallest details just right.
