    What could be more wonderful than going to Disneyland, or Disneyworld, as a kid? What could be more wonderful going as a college student? How about going to Disney Land, or Disney World, for college? That is exactly what Kayla Layden did. 

The Western Carolinian sat down with Kayla, who is a double major in Stage and Screen and Hospitality with a minor in Art, and talked with her about her experience with the Disney College.

Kaitlyn Sizemore is a nationally recognized contemporary dancer and a senior here at Western Carolina University.

    Sizemore was not good at traditional sports as a child, and she had tried a lot of them. Nothing athletic ever seemed to click for her, and she was starting to get flustered. At the end of her rope, she looked into dancing. Now, she has been dancing for 16 years and has practiced in dozens of different styles, but her preference is contemporary, which borrows elements from jazz, ballet and hip-hop to create a fast-paced, modern atmosphere.
