Alumni Spotlight

Preston Eberlyn
"The University of Findlay provided an overall education that allowed me to pursue my passions. One of the truths of theatre is that you have to be well-rounded in order to be a better actor and fully understand the show that you're working on. Coming to Findlay allowed me to double-major in theatre and political science, and become both a better person and a better professional."
