Casey Bryant, from Lagrangeville, New York, will be graduating this spring with a degree in Sports Communication. On campus, he is a familiar face participating in Marist’s television and radio stations, as well as the drama club and Marist College Singers. He also works off campus as a production assistant in the On-Air Promotions department at MSG Networks.
How has your involvement in the creative arts enhanced your college experience?
The creative arts have really let me test my limitations. I've been able to push myself and help create some really awesome things, from MCTV programming to pursuing my passion, play-by-play broadcasting for hockey.
What is the most significant change you have seen in yourself since coming to Marist?
I find I'm generally able to work through adversity better. Throughout college, everyone faces a myriad of challenges. I'm an ambitious person, and I've faced a plethora of unique obstacles. My time here has taught me that hard work and persistence will always pay off.
If anything, what sort of legacy do you hope to leave behind?
I want to be remembered as someone who cared about what they did. When doing anything, it's easy to act nonchalant or brush things off out of fear of failure or that trying hard isn't "cool." But I've loved working hard and challenging myself in and out of class, and feel I'm better for it. If there's something you want, go get it. I would love for future sports comm students to have that drive.
