In addition to her academics, Andrews is a member of the College's Equestrian team. Michael Bednarek, coach of the Western Equestrian Team, said, Nancy is a very good rider; she qualified for our regional finals in March. She is a pleasure to have on our team.
One of Andrews' art interests is photographing animals.
Nancy did some horse photography for me and I was extremely pleased," Bednarek said. "I am using her work in some of my advertising.
Andrews' Senior Capstone project at Cazenovia College involves following the college's equine veterinarian on her rounds with a camera. The end result will be a photo documentary of the life of an equine veterinarian.
Chowdhury and other professors in the Studio Art Program are dedicated to helping each student find a direction that fits his or her individual talents; internships and the Senior Capstone play a large part in that effort.
One unique characteristic of our program, Chowdhury said, is our emphasis on professional development and future career paths for our students. Nancy, like all of our photography majors, completed a professional internship, and has spent a great deal of time and energy planning and preparing for her career in courses on portfolio preparation and the business aspects of making a living as an artist or photographer. This individually tailored, professionally centered curriculum gives Cazenovia College students a great competitive advantage.
Andrews' photojournalism experience and her photo documentary work have given her some direction for her career.
After I graduate, I think I'd like to work for a newspaper or magazine," Andrews said. "I love the variety. You do something different every day.
