Graduating senior Patricia Liu, a communication major and theatre minor, spent her four years at Aurora University immersing herself in the opportunities that the campus had to offer. Through her involvements, she found a community of friends and the chance to grow and transform as a leader, performer and team player.
“My involvements have contributed to my success at AU by learning to work hard, time manage and overall be a better communicator,” Patricia said.
While at AU, Patricia was a dedicated student who spent her time working in all areas of theatre. She built sets, ran sound, was on the running crew and also appeared on stage. She previously performed in the AU production Lend Me a Tenor and also played Pearl in this year’s spring production, These Shining Lives.
Patricia was the recipient of the 2013 Stanley H. Perry Performing Arts Award, an honor that was awarded to her for her involvement in the performing arts and the significant contribution she made to the performing arts during her academic career at AU.
“I am extremely grateful to receive this honor,” said Patricia. “I am especially thankful for Professor Curran and Professor Roush for making me a well-rounded performer of the arts.”
Along with her involvement in theatre, Patricia participated in InterVarsity Christian Felllowship and The Actor’s and Playwright’s Society, was a member of the women’s lacrosse team, and worked as a radio DJ for AU’s student run radio station SpartanCast. She also was a member of Phi Eta Sigma, was on the Dean’s List spring semester 2012 and received the Crimi Scholarship for Academic Achievement.
