IC Honors Student Spotlight: Jimmy Doyle ’17

Meet junior Jimmy, a Cinema and Photography major with a concentration in screenwriting and a minor in Theatre from Southington, Connecticut! Jimmy was in London last semester and has returned to Ithaca for the spring, so learn more about him below:


Favorite part about IC:The people, for sure. There are so many different people with different interests and skills, that not only have I made lasting, DOPE friendships, but I can also abuse my friends immense talents for my own gain.”

Favorite Honors seminar you’ve taken (so far) and why:Dark Knight. Why? It’s about fudging BATMAN!”

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors Program:I could talk about a million amazing collaborations between people more talented than me, but my favorite was writing and directing a workshop of my original musical ‘Heart Center: The Yoga Musical!’ Having the opportunity and resources to actually put on my vulgar passion project was fantastic, especially being able to work with actors who make my work seem way better than it really is. Fellow Honorite (Honorarian? Honorer?), Carrie Lindeman was the biggest help for co-writing the musical and being responsible for any song that sounds good. Expecting a full production of the show at IC this fall. It’ll be good and funny… hopefully.”
