Media Communication Major Alyson Schozer was one of 18 Islanders who recently learned how important theater is to the world during a Study Abroad Program that led her to experience England, Scotland, and Paris over the summer.

Schozer, a junior, says her favorite memories of the trip were attending live plays including “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” and “WarHorse.”  She also had the opportunity to participate in a workshop with a cast member from “WarHorse,” and learned the basics of acting as a horse on stage. In addition, she also learned how the cast uses the puppets on stage.

“The best part about it all was that my own passion for theater was rekindled,” said Schozer, who plans to attend film school. “I now feel more confident in my life choices.”

During her London trip, Schozer created a blog to share her experiences. The blog helped her get a lot of her momentous thoughts out into the world while she was on the trip, and she can  always go and re-experience the trip by viewing the blog at http://ally-inlondon.tumblr.com/.

Schozer has been active in numerous organizations in her two years at the Island University.  Since her freshman year, she has led tours across the campus for prospective students as an Island Ambassador. Schozer is co-founder of the Harry Potter Club, established in 2012 so that Harry Potter fans at the Island University could get together and reminisce on the phenomenon that was so important to many students.

She has served as an Orientation Leader and is a member of the Gay-Straight Alliance and the Omega Phi Alpha National Service Sorority. For the last year, she has been working in the University Center Scheduling Office. Her most recent adventure is becoming a Resident Advisor for Camden Miramar.

“I love being involved on campus and hope to continue it!” said Schozer.  “I cannot express how excited I am to start this new job and be the best I can be for my residents.”
