Emma Cunningham

Hometown: Lee’s Summit, MO

Major: Theater Performance and American Sign Language Interpreting

Minors: American Sign Language Studies


Why did you choose William Woods?

I chose William Woods because of the incredible interpreting program and the beautiful and walkable campus. I stayed because of those things, as well as the life-long friends I’ve made, the connections I made with other students and faculty, and because it’s not every day you get to wake up and go practice something as special to me as theatre in such a pretty place as Dulany Auditorium.

What campus organizations are you involved in?

Alpha Phi, Jesters Theatre Co. (student run theatre group), Alpha Psi Omega (theatre honors society), First Impressions (student choir), SUC IT (improv team), and the Reel Fanatics Film Club

What is your favorite thing to do in Fulton?

Go down to the Brick District, window shop and check out all of the stores. (My favorites are The Playhouse Bistro, One Canoe Two, Well Read, and Smockingbirds).

What is the best LEAD event you’ve ever been to?

I really liked the outdoor showing of Fantastic Beasts that the Quidditch team hosted at the amphitheater!
