Pursuing an art photography degree developed Genevieve Marshall’s listening and observation skills—and led to a career supporting Syracuse’s refugee community.
When Genevieve Marshall ’12, G’17 was thinking about colleges as a high school senior, her goal was to follow her passion for photography. A few days after Christmas, Marshall and her mother made the drive north from her hometown of Baltimore to look at Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. What she found out on her tour inspired her to apply. “I loved that I was able to start photography my first semester and I didn’t have to complete two years of fine arts,” she says.
