Graduating from the UWindsor drama program, combined with her professional experiences since, has given Meaghen Quinn (BFA Acting 2001) an ability to connect with prospective students—and their parents.

Now an instructor in the School of Dramatic Art, she loves being able to work with her colleagues and mentors to recruit new students.

“I had a positive experience when I was a student,” she says. “It's a privilege to be teaching here and in a position that allows me to promote the School of Dramatic Art.”
