Michelle Teske

Major: Acting

Hometown: Tulsa, Okla.

Hobbies: Reading, Netflix, video games, baking

Fun fact: I was born in Hawaii.

Before Arcadia: I was part of two award-winning show choirs, was a member of the thespian troupe, and was a model for a local high school photography group. I’ve been involved with theater and performing for a lot of my life. I love it and don’t think I could live without it, and I want to pursue it.

Why Arcadia: I chose Arcadia for a lot of reasons. But the biggest ones for me were the environment of the campus and the community when I visited. I wanted to go somewhere where I would be close to people. I didn’t want to go to a big campus. Arcadia isn’t giant. And it felt right when I visited. It clicked.

What I hope to accomplish at Arcadia: In the next four years at Arcadia, I hope I find my place and my home there. And I hope that this experience will help me grow and give me a fresh start away from everything that I was comfortable with and help me find who I am in this new section of my life.
