Starting his own business while still a college student at the University of San Diego, he’s always been a go-getter. But Seth admits it’s never been an easy road for him. While a student at CWA, he describes himself as an average student who always had to work hard to keep up with his peers. “At CWA it only takes a few hours on the first day to realize your natural limitations,” he says. “I remember students scoring perfect scores on their SATS being a common conversation.

From actor to nurse practitioner, Kevin Lapin ’91 has done it all.

After receiving his BA in French from Dartmouth College, Kevin returned to the Seattle area and worked at Amazon. Always interested in theater, it wasn’t long before he got the itch and decided to leave Amazon and see if he could make it as an actor. The decision to pursue acting and theater led him back to France to attend École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq, a renowned theater school in Paris.
