"In my opinion, what makes the department special is the dedication that the incredibly resourceful faculty and students demonstrate. At 17 shows per year, we are constantly running around, always working, being vulnerable, and giving our all to the art of performing arts. The most useful skills I have learned have been time management, learning to keep an open mind, heart, and soul, and that being a good person is very important in this business. I think that's why going to school here is one of the best decisions I've made in my life."
