Sinque Tavares

Sinque Tavares Theatre ’17 “My eyes have been opened to other dance forms and how to choreograph in different perspectives; I like to incorporate different genres into the same dance — hip hop, jazz, modern, tap — I like to do everything.”

Piro, Justin

Justin Piro Biochemistry ’05 “The majority of my classes at Eastern included a strong lab component. I was doing what scientists do — getting outside of the classroom and working with the latest scientific equipment. Eastern really set the groundwork for me to go to graduate school.”
