Anthony Zuniga is destined
By Carmen Boone
Anthony Zuniga is a senior at Brevard College.
He is a double major in music and theatre.
Brevard College is well known for its music
program. Zuniga chose BC so he could learn
more about music. He also loves the mountains
and the kind of community that Brevard is. “I
knew I’d grow a lot here,” said Zuniga.
Zuniga was born in Anaheim, California,
but grew up and now lives in Athens, Georgia.
Brevard was a big change. However, Athens is
also a college town, so there were lots of things
to do when growing up.
When not doing homework or rehearsing for
his classes, Zuniga enjoys cooking; he finds
it relaxing and rewarding. He also sings in

Zuniga is super involved on campus as well.
He has been in many of the plays on campus
such as “Into the Woods,” “The Life of Galileo”
and “Boeing Boeing. Aside from that, he is in
Chamber Choir and tours with them singing in
places all over the United States.
Zuniga is also a work-study student. He works
lights and sound for many events that happen
all over campus. He was an RA for two years
in Green Hall too. “Fve done a lot here and I
am proud of the work I’ve done,” said Zuniga.
There have been several people that have been
a major help to Zuniga in his college career. A
couple of those people are Dr. Kathryn and Dr.
David Gresham and Andrea Boccanfuso. They
have cared for his mental and physical health
and all around kept him sane. Zuniga also said
they have challenged him to be his best self all
throughout his career at Brevard.
“You know, when we recruit we tell students
about the close relationships that professors and
students can have at Brevard due to it’s small
size, but experiencing it firsthand I can say that
those people have special hearts and have been
blessing in my life,” said Zuniga. “I don’t know
how I’ll ever repay them for all they’ve done for
me, but someday I will.”
One thing that has been really challenging
for Zuniga, which is also true for most college
students, is time management. He loves to stay
busy and be involved but sometimes he feels a
bit overwhelmed. However, thinking of his end
goal and his passion for what he does is what
keeps him going.
In his four years here, Zuniga has met
some amazing people and built incredible
relationships. “The things I’ve learned through
people and the interactions I’ve had at Brevard
are some of the most dear to me,” said Zuniga.
“I’ve grown in ways I never knew I would thanks
to the people I’ve met along my journey here.
I’ll never forget them.”
College is a place for growth and change. If
there’s one thing Zuniga has learned at Brevard
it’s to “Never. Give. Up.” Even when the world
is falling apart and you feel lost and broken, “you
have to keep pushing forward because once you
get through it, you’ll be twice as strong, ready
for the next challenge,” said Zuniga.
His advice is also to have fun. “College is your
time to find yourself and use your freedom,”
