Keeping Up With... Lindsey Jarrett, '21

by: Evan Bourgeault

Lindsey Jarrett graduated from Wooster in 2021. Since then, she has been attending school at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA. Lindsey is still undecided on her major and minors, however she is highly considering an accessory design major with drawing and jewelry design minors. This isn't a surprise for me considering that ever since I've known Lindsey she has been an extremely talented artist. I reached out to her with a list of questions regarding her life since leaving Wooster. Here are her answers...

What is your favorite and least favorite thing about college?

My favorite thing about SCAD is the amount of specialized classes that they offer. I loved taking Life Drawing where we were able to learn about anatomy and enveloping techniques by drawing live models in the nude. I thought about my least favorite part of college life for a while, and I honestly could not come up with anything other than the food. However, I feel like being indifferent to campus food and not being able to afford nice meals is part of the college experience, so I don't dwell on it too much.

What has changed in your life since graduating and going to college?

I have a part time job as a Bridal Consultant at a local bridal boutique. I sell wedding dresses and make social media content. I couldn't imagine a better work environment or job for myself. I love helping brides pick out, try on, and decide on a dress they feel comfortable and confident in. I get paid to wear gorgeous dresses! What is not to love?!

Do you keep in touch with your graduating class?

Avery Wadhera is still my best friend and I recently visited her at UNC Chapel Hill. I only get to see her a couple of times a year, so we are definitely missing being together every day at Wooster. We curse the day we decided not to go to LMU together! (although we love where we are now)

Have you made any new friends at college?

Yes! I am happy to have found some friends who I feel suit me well and I very much enjoy being around. SCAD being a creative school has made it easier for me to find like-minded, weird and perceptive people.

Did Wooster set you up for success in college?

One of the best skills I learned while at Wooster was to advocate for myself. I dealt with mental health issues in high school (and I still do), so being able to vocalize my needs and communicate to professors was/is incredibly important to me. Having good relationships with teachers at Wooster (shout out Mr. P and Mrs. Carlson) gave me the confidence to professionally discuss my mental health and get the assistance I need.

What did you like about Wooster that you haven't found at college?

I miss Spectrum, Pride and Art Club! I have yet to try out any clubs or activities and I am especially missing the community I found in Wooster clubs. It is art school, so although I am not in a special group, I do encounter my fair share of queer creatives which is always appreciated.

Here is some of the artwork Lindsey has made since attending SCAD...
