The school has all the benefits of a private college with the public college prices. The atmosphere is great. The people and staff at the university are all friendly and have you in their best interest. There are a ton of opportunities for you to be involved on campus as well. All in all, USAO is a fantastic school!
Review University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma
I love the theatre program. It is very open and very malleable to every student's interests and needs. That being said, the director will not let anyone she sees as sub par or below her standards get through the program without achieving the vast amount of knowledge she believes her graduate need. Courses outside the theatre department are also mandatory for a theatre major. Specialization and personalized majors are also something she usually ends up requiring for her students.

Associate Professor Davis is extremely knowledgeable and wants all of her students leaving ready for a career in their preferred field. She is also caring for the theatre majors and will listen and give them advice. The amount of time required in Davis Hall means the theatre majors become an incredibly close knit familial group and nearby graduates will return to participate in productions.
I like the interdisciplinary style. The weirdest is the team taught courses. To work efficiently, you have two teachers that have differing views so you have perspectives to consider. I liked my first one, but the second one was not as great because they had the same mind.
