Rebecca Scolnick
Transferred to NYU in 2011

"FLC offered me the opportunity to improve my GPA, while also participating in shows and building my theatre resume."

Rebecca Scolnick

When did you start taking classes with Folsom Lake College (FLC)?

I started taking classes at FLC in the Fall of 2009 and graduated Spring 2011.

What was your major?

My major was Theatre/General Studies.

Why did you choose FLC?

I chose FLC because I knew that I wanted to go into theatre professionally, but my high school grades weren't strong enough to get into my dream school- New York University. FLC offered me the opportunity to improve my GPA, while also participating in shows and building my theatre resume.

What was the best part of your experience with FLC?

The best part of my FLC experience was playing Olive Ostrovsky in the Falcon's Eye Theatre production of "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," under the direction of Professor David Harris.

What are you particularly proud of that you accomplished with FLC?

I am proud of finally getting A's in Chemistry and Math! I studied really hard and succeeded in snagging my A's.

How do you feel Folsom Lake College helped prepare you for the future?

FLC allowed me to grow as a person, an actor, and a student, which prepared me to transfer to NYU. Without FLC, and more importantly my wonderful Counselor Jill Morrison, that would not have been possible. Jill and FLC really took the time to fight for my academic career and support me in my transfer to university.

What are you doing now?

I am currently finishing my final semester at NYU, where I will graduate with a BFA in Acting. My concentration this semester is Film and TV Acting at Stonestreet Studios, an NYU affiliate. I am also directing my first play, "Proof" by David Auburn, which will play in New York City's theatre district in January of 2014.

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to stay in NYC and make my living as an actor! I would like to do a combination of theatre, film, and television. I'm also excited to see where my passion for directing will take me!
