Shane was a music and economics major. He was actively involved with the music department and was a guitarist in ensembles such as the Improv Lab and Jug Band.
Being a music major allowed him to meet other students who displayed the same musical interests he had. Classes within the music department are "small and engaging, while the professors are highly skilled and personable. The department’s emphasis on participating in music ensembles helped me become a better musician by learning about a variety of genres and playing styles. My experience as a music major has been very rewarding and will last a lifetime."
