Intended Major: Dance Performance
Butler University is excited to welcome an exceptional group of first-year students this coming fall. Read on to get to know Anisa Cobb, one member of the Class of 2024.
What were you involved with in high school?
In high school, I was a member of the National Honor Society, an English and math tutor, and a member of the Mitchellville Drifters Coral Mentoring Program, where we participated in various community service projects. I was also really active in dance and was part of the Baltimore School for the Arts, where I performed in The Nutcracker each year in addition to various other spring performances.
How did you initially hear about Butler, and what interested you in the University?
In August, I visited a friend who attends Butler and toured the school. I also attended Butler Blue Scholars’ Day and toured the school again. Each time I was on campus, the friendliness and openness of all the students and faculty was wonderful. Also, the dance department is top-rated, and I really wanted to attend a strong program in order to enhance and expand my dancing abilities.
What do you hope to major or minor in?
I plan to double major in Dance and Health Sciences. If not a double major, I hope to minor in Health Sciences. The great thing about Butler is that there are so many options that it’s possible to be involved in so many different things.
What do you hope to get involved with or be a part of at Butler?
I am really looking forward to being a part of the Butler Dance department. I am also looking forward to being a Morton Finney Scholar. And, of course I can’t wait to attend the Butler basketball games!
