UNCSA is a very rigorous program. Our first year we learn other Design and Production Majors such as Scenery, electrics, and costumes. We are on crew for sometimes long hours. It's very tough but that's why it is rewarding and educational at the end! My favorite course out of crew rotations was being in Costumes. The gowns were gorgeous and actors were very entertaining.
My school is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Being able to do something to what I love and present it on stage often times during the school year is exciting. I like how there are super well know guests of every kind of talent come and visit our college and talk to the classes and inspire the environment and energy. The students are always doing something with their majors and it would always be different with too much creative, which is what makes them epic! I'm going to spend the rest of my years here most definitely.
