GLAD TO BE AT JUILLIARD!
I'm just going to share a few reasons I love being a student at Juilliard! :)
1. Everyone is SO talented/skilled/whatever you want to call it.
I can't go down a hallway without hearing or seeing at least one Juilliard student/faculty do something jawdropping. Sometimes, it even inspires me to randomly practice throughout the day.
2. Proudly wearing the merch attracts mostly good attention...
Honestly, I hate when people wear merch from things they haven't experienced or have no relationship with. But luckily, I'm a Juilliard student, so it feels good to rep. A lot of times, though, I get stares (like I'm a celebrity or something) and the occasional question about how it feels to be at Juilliard.
3. The community is so tight-knit.
Every school is a school (shocker). Therefore, not everyone is going to be your best friend. Ultimately, there is a mutual respect for everyone, but you really find those people you gel with and enjoy spending time with. The coolest thing about it is that sometimes that group can include alumni. IT'S ALL LOVE WITH THE JYARD FAM!
