"Theatre is my escape in times when I don’t know how to connect with my feelings. I’ve grown to know so many new people and not only am I closer to others in the department I’m also closer to myself. I’m incredibly thankful for the opportunities I have been given.” - Illyria Bogner
"Illyria is an exceptional leader in the theatre program. She is such a driven young woman inspiring students around her to never underestimate themselves. She builds others up while encouraging them to be better. I appreciate how Illyria sees areas of weakness in the program and works to strengthen them." - Dr. Allison Fleetwood
