Most Theater faculty members use the break periods (fall break, winter break, spring break and the summer months) to travel for research projects and professional artistic work, and thus have limited time on campus. Typcially during the summer break (mid-May through Labor Day), we can arrange for a brief tour of our facilities and possibly a meeting with current theater majors that are enrolled in summer session courses.
