TaTiana Torres grew up in Loveland, Colorado and is currently pursuing her passion for vocal performance at CU Denver. As the College of Arts & Media’s (CAM) student government association (SGA) representative, Torres will be advocating for her fellow CAM students this academic year. She has set a goal of student engagement for her first year representing CAM. Torres is studying recording arts with a performance emphasis in voice. After graduation, she hopes to create her own music and establish herself as a recording and performing artist. Drawn to CU Denver for its contemporary music program, Torres says she really appreciates the people she has met in CAM.
1. What do you hope to work on during your time in SGA?
I want to become a link between students and administration so that our student voices are represented and heard. I also hope to create a strong connection between the different departments in CAM through different avenues of collaboration. And during my time in SGA, I hope to become the best advocate for the students and faculty within the College of Arts and Media.
2. What drew you to CAM and your choice of study?
As a musician and performer, every college that I looked at focused solely on the principles of classical music. I wanted a program that specifically honed in on my skills as a contemporary musician, and that’s when I came across CU Denver and CAM. The fact that they offer a recording arts program was one of the main reasons why I decided to come to CU Denver.
3. What do you like about living in Denver? What is something you wished you knew before you came here?
I like that I’m just in the heart of the city. There’s so much to do, so many places to explore, so much food that I have access to. I also love that Denver is such a diverse city.
I personally wish I knew how to work and use the RTD services. I’ve had to learn as I went because I don’t have a car in the city, but I wished I could’ve known I could utilize the public transit in Denver my first year.
4. If you could go on any study abroad trip offered through CAM, which would you choose? Why?
I would definitely do a semester abroad in Malaysia. Being able to experience a different culture and environment while still studying what I love is an opportunity of a lifetime. Plus, the country looks absolutely beautiful.
5. Tell us something most people don’t know about you.
I have an irrational fear of escalators. I can still use them, but I always have to watch my step because I’m scared my shoelace is going to get caught or something. I blame watching Final Destination when I was four without parental supervision.
