David Walter sits near Mabee Theater.

Rockhurst’s theater program taught me a lot about how to lean on other people and how to really make connections that matter. Being in shows and working with our director has taught me about how to put your ego aside when you’re creating something and really rely on your community.

– David Walter | English and Secondary Education ‘20
