In addition to strong academic programs the university is also committed to the community. We offer international touring performances as well as free concerts, exhibits and hands-on learning throughout the year for students of all ages.

And this fall we are offering two workshops to younger students! Students in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade will learn to sing, dance and act for musical theatre as they experience a glimpse into the process through the Broadway hit Elf, the Musical. And older students, grades 5th through 8th grades, can join in on the fun by learning scenes from the adventurous play, Tom Sawyer, based on the classic novel written by Mark Twain.

And did we mention the Summer Arts Festival. The campus rolls with activities and every speck of the campus swirls with activities including free theatrical performances, art displays and hands-on fun. Don’t you want to SEE What’s Next!
