ETS Major Receives Chayat Award

May 4, 2017
Linnea Nordgren — a graduating senior with a dual major in ETS and Television, Radio, and Film — has received the Jonathan Chayat Memorial Award. The recipients of the award, like the student for whom it is named, demonstrate "particular concern for, and appreciation of, the ethical and aesthetic dimensions of life, devotion to self-knowledge and excellence, and active participation in, and imaginative contribution, to the Syracuse University community," while also showing "a genuine involvement in the arts."
Nordgren is a member of Delta Kappa Alpha Cinematic Arts fraternity where she held the position of chapter secretary for the past year. She is passionate about poetry, television, music, and human rights. After graduation, Nordgren plans to move to New York to pursue a career in television production and development. Creative writing will be an important part of her life for many years to come.
