    Best tech colleges?

    I go to Carnegie Mellon, and I absolutely love it. It's pretty hardcore, but if you're really sure you want to do theatre, and it's your ultimate passion, it's amazing. There isn't a lot of room for taking classes outside the department, but plenty of people do it--mostly as electives--and if...

    Hi there!

    Excellent. You will invariably get another tour of the theatre building. You can never see the bowels of the Purnell Center too many times it seems. I think I toured it three or four times before ever starting classes. They do tend to show you more and more each time, though, so it is...

    Hi there!

    Hi, jimw. I'm a freshman at CMU, and I can say without any apprehension that I absolutely adore the program. The school's pretty cool, too. I also applied to Ithaca, but never actually visited the campus, and I didn't apply to BU, so I don't have much to say about either of those schools...

    College?

    I just wrote a really long, detailed post, and the moment I finished my browser closed...*sigh* typical. I'm just going to condense it to the list of schools I made. Know that some offer just degrees in recording tech or just degrees in sound design (more in tech) and some offer both. CalArts...

    Non-Stage Lighting

    I've never been in Whitman's auditorium, which is a personal travesty--I really wish I had seen you're West Side this year. Congrats on all those Cappie nominations, too. But, as I've never seen the auditorium, I don't quite know what lighting effects would be most operative for what you're...

    schools

    It all depends on what you want to focus on, what kind of college you want to go to, and, also very importantly, how qualified you are. There are generally two categories of theater programs at colleges: Conservatory or Liberal Arts. If you're interested in Full Sail, then you're probably...

    College Considerations

    I'm in the exact same search and looking at those two schools, also, plus Emerson College, Ithaca College, DePaul University, and Carnegie Mellon University. CMU is supposed to have the highest level of lighting technology out of any of the schools, which is why I'm applying. It was...

    College Apps, and the drunken posse that comes with them...

    I did look at UVA, but I'm more focused on smaller schools with more concentrated programs. I have been recommending it to some friends for other majors, like engineering and psychology. But thanks for the rec.

    College Apps, and the drunken posse that comes with them...

    Hey everyone! I'm applying to a number of lovely colleges that I have yet to lay eyes on, and I know I need to get my portfolio ready for all those blind date interviews, and I'd like a little guidance to get me going in the right direction. Here are the eligible bachelors: North Carolina...
