Carmen Ruby Floyd (2000)

Commercial / TV / Stage Actor

What I really loved about NU’s theatre program was that it was well rounded. One semester I'd be striking props, creating costumes and operating lights, then the next I'm doing a play and musical. It’s great to be able to learn how it all works and appreciate it when it's done well. Our profession is all about creating and community. Knowledge is the key. Having multiple skills only makes it better.

Thanks to the relatively small size of the university, I knew how to communicate and work with all the other departments. If I needed something from wigs or if I was trying to explain an issue with props, it was easy to communicate because we all worked together for the greater good.
