Student Spotlight: Jamie French

Jamie is a Sound Recording Technology major from Spring, Texas

How did the LLC help you transition from your hometown to Texas State? It has been easier to make friends than if I would not have been in an LLC. 

How has the LLC helped you academically? It’s helped me feel more prepared in my classes and confident in my career path. I have been able to benefit from multiple group study sessions in my hall that have helped me feel more prepared for my tests. Plus, the SRT LLC has given me many opportunities to get more involved with my major and the people involved in it.

Who is your favorite professor and why? Chris Bell, because he’s been in the Recording field for quite some time and he talks with us rather than to us.

What is a fun fact about you? I started getting involved with music in my sophomore year in high school. I often get told that I look like Ed Sheeran.
