Rozalyn Yancey: Accepted into AIP

College Bound Q&A

Rozalyn Yancey


BluePrint: What college were you accepted into?

Yancey: I was accepted at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

BluePrint: How many colleges did you apply to?

Yancey: I only applied to two; AIP and Penn State.

BluePrint: What made you apply to this specific college?

Yancey: It’s close enough to home that I can still visit my family, but also gives me enough distance to be independent. It also offers the major that I want to focus on.

BluePrint: What are you planning on majoring in?

Yancey: Media Arts and Animation.

The people I’ll be around are going to be the biggest change, but I’m looking forward to it.

BluePrint: What made you choose this specific major?

Yancey: All I’ve ever wanted to do is create art and I figured that with my prior knowledge of animating, it would be a good fit for me. I want to help produce the animated movies that I enjoy so much; the ones like Pixar, Disney, and DreamWorks.

BluePrint: What do you think will be some of the major differences between college and high school?

Yancey: The classwork will be extremely different. The people I’ll be around are going to be the biggest change, but I’m looking forward to it.

BluePrint: What are your feelings on moving on from Bellwood-Antis High School?

Yancey: I’m going to miss it, even if the feeling is slight. Bellwood-Antis has prepared me to go and pursue further education as well as they could have and I will be forever thankful.
