Cynthia MyronBFA Sculpture, Marywood University 2002
Arts Administrator in the Art History Department at Virginia Commonwealth University
"I would not be where I am today without the education, opportunities (both in and out of the classroom environment) and experience that I received throughout my time at Marywood University. Most importantly, what stands out to me now are the relationships that I formed with former professors who have become lifelong mentors."More Alumni testimonials »
