  • consistently has over 75% of its students who attend the Southeastern Conference national unified auditions to not only pass the screening, but to receive multiple callbacks for job offers.
  • launched a New York studies program in spring 2012, allowing seniors to spend their final semester at the Tepper Center for Careers in Theatre, studying with Broadway professionals.
