    Howdy,

    I know I am being a little bias as I am a college student myself. I go to Western Wyoming Community College. They offer an Associates in the Fine Arts (AFA) degree and their credits will transfer almost anywhere as it is only a 2 year school. WWCC is among the lowest priced colleges in the country. And WWCC has a great diversity, We have students from Africa, Japan and others. The music department is good and in the theatre department you will have sound and lighting classes.

    Look for a school with a top notch Televison Program. U.S. News & World Reports has an annual listing of college programs ranked and divided by tiers. Check that out! Or you can always fine somebody in the industry.

    Well, if you're from canada, or don't mind getting a student visa, Simon Fraiser University in Vancouver has one of the best Theatre Arts schools in Canada, University of Toronto as well, if you're looking for something a little more east.

    The American dollar really stretches in Canada. So you get more bang for ya buck.

    Look at Full Sail University in Orlando Florida, they might have what you are looking for and might not. There is a good article about the school in this months Stage Directions Magazine.

    No matter what you do make sure you visit the school and talk to people. Not just the student giving the tour, s/he is a used car salesman in training. Talk to other people in the program and then track down an alumnus somewhere that has similar mission in life as you. I went to a college based upon my eldest brothers experience while there for medical school, and it was a complete disaster for me. He was a completely different person then I and was based on a different area of campus. Graduate students, law students, and medical students are treated as higher life forms at most universities. So Look, Ask, and Listen.

    My only other advice is have a good old fashion sit down with the parental units about $$$$$$$ and what they want. There is nothing worse than setting your heart on a school like Yale, Northwestern, Stanford. Wash U. or even Valparaiso, just to find out your parental units has/have certain guidelines with respect to distance, cost, and religious affiliation.
