"Thank you to my support system at Salem for continuing to help me make my dreams comes true!"
Layla McCarthy, C’21
Class of 2021
Major: Design with concentration in architectural studies
When I started at Salem College, I had no idea where my future was going to take me. I had big aspirations, but I never thought they were attainable. My professors in the design department at Salem changed my mind. They inspired me every day and taught me that there is no limit to creativity. Without their support and motivation, I would not be where I am today. Since the fall of 2022, I have been attending the University of Central Florida to earn my master’s degree in themed experience. It has always been my dream to design theme parks and I am thrilled to get the chance to study something that I am so passionate about. Thank you to my support system at Salem for continuing to help me make my dreams comes true!
