Purchase Dancer and Journalist Gets Published

Our journalism students at Purchase are amazing, talented people. But not too many of them can stand on one foot and point the other one to the sky. Christina Blankenship is one of the few who can because as well as blazing a trail through the journalism program, she is a dancer at Purchase’s Conservatory of Dance. This summer, she described her experiences to DanceU101.com

“I’m a little strung out sometimes, but Purchase is the perfect place for intensive studies. I just have to be really disciplined about my work. The campus is pretty isolated so there isn’t much to distract my focus. But New York City is only 30 minutes away, which provides a nice balance of work and play.”
