Whether she is performing at her high school or her local dance studio, Saige Batza ’25 is happy to be on stage. She loves singing and dancing, and she has participated in dance recitals and musical productions since she was little.
A native of North Branford, Conn., Batza is looking forward to officially joining Charger Nation in August, and she hopes to continue her involvement in the performing arts in college. She reflected on her decision to become a Charger in advance of National Decision Day on May 1, which marks the deadline for students to submit their enrollment deposit to join Batza as members of the University’s Class of 2025.
“As soon as I set foot on campus, I felt at home,” she said. “I felt closer to my dream than ever before. I look forward to watching my dream come true with my future set at the University.”
An incoming psychology major, Batza is fascinated by how the mind works and how psychology impacts individuals and those around them.
Excited to experience life as a Charger, Batza is looking forward to being involved in the University community. She is eager to meet her classmates and to make new friends.
“I am honored to have an opportunity like this,” she said. “I will take advantage of every opportunity I have moving forward. Although I may not know what’s next as I transition to college, I am confident in my future at the University of New Haven.”
