Though senior Anisha Massey entered Mercer University as a Graphic Design major, this changed some time after. Now a Spanish major, Massey still continues design.
“I tend to be introverted, [and] I’ve always really liked to be creative,” said Massey. “At this point, I’ve seen that it is definitely a good asset to have.”
While Massey said she enjoys all aspects of graphic design, the senior said her favorite styles involve working with photo editing and creating greeting cards.
Throughout her time at Mercer, Massey said she has been able to build great relationships in the small environment of campus. She has especially been appreciative of the guidance from instructors like Luke Buffenmyer, who encourage her creatively.
Massey said she feels at ease on campus because of the people on campus.
“It’s a very friendly atmosphere on campus,” Massey said. “The students and faculty, they’re very helpful . . . it’s a small school, so they get to know you.”
When she is not designing, Massey is a flute player in Mercer’s marching band who enjoys spending time with friends and participating in athletic activities.
“She’s always been very eager to help people, very sweet to people,” said senior engineering major Jacob Copeland. “[Massey] loves to play basketball at Penfield – [she’s an] athletic person.”
In her senior year, Massey said she will continue on with graphic design.
After graduation, she has made plans to take a gap year and then study abroad in Spain or Australia.
Massey said she wants new students to get involved in building relationships on campus.
She also recommends students be creative and try their hand at a mix of everything Mercer has to offer.
“Don’t be afraid to get to know your professors. Talk to other people and experiment and learn,” she said.
