Hi there! My name is Alex Serna Castillon. Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, I am a pre-med senior in the Visual Arts department concentrating in the practice of filmmaking. Outside of academics, I am an ARCA in Butler College along with being the current co-chair for Butler College Council.

Coming into Princeton, I knew that the majority of my classes were going to consist of pre-med requirements. But the love I have for the arts propelled me to fill the remaining slots in my schedule with various classes in acting, the study of film, and photography.

Ultimately in my sophomore year, I discovered the Practice of Art track offered by the Visual Arts department and was graciously accepted into the film program. I was absolutely ecstatic! I was given the opportunity to fulfill my STEM requirements while simultaneously majoring in something that would continue letting me take more art classes.

If you feel like you can relate to any part of my story, or just have questions about what kinds of programs the LCA has to offer, feel free to reach out to me.

We're so excited to have you at Princeton!
