    Tell us about studying theatre studies in the USA
    We have a limited number of students for each class so the professors have a personal relationship with each student and this helps the students immensely because you can approach the professors in case you need help, not just with classwork but if you need to know where to get materials for your class, etc. My dance teacher recommended a dance clothes store and even talked to the store owner to offer her students discounts when they buy from her and that helped me a lot because I was new to the area and had no clue where to get the dance shoes or anything like that.

    The University offers an all-round curriculum to prepare the students for the outside world in a way I appreciate a lot. With the classes one has to cover in order to graduate, there's no way one can go out there as just an arts or just a science student. I am currently studying math, which I do not like doing because I am not that good at it but there are tutors to help and good professors that make you feel differently about the subject, do I want to to do math? Absolutely not, but I do appreciate that I am studying it at this level and I know I will smile about it once I am done with the course.

    There are academic advisers and each student has one, these do a good job helping you plan out your course load and and advise you which classes you can do together or when to take less credit hours if you have a particularly hard class in a given semester, everyone is available to you if you're not shy and can ask for help when you need it. I am doing Theatre and Communications, every lecture I attend reminds me everyday that I made the right decision coming to Mount Union. That said, you are free to disagree with the advisers and take on as much as you know you can handle up to the given maximum allowed every semester and they will still do their best to help you as you navigate that path.

    The tuition is balanced off by a good amount of aid that is given by the University and you can keep this aid by maintaining a certain GPA requirement, this is so far the only reason I have been able to stay in school this far otherwise I would not have handled. The school also provides a payment plan so the students' parents or guardians can make the payments in small affordable installments overtime.
    Did I mention one can also work on campus while studying? Oh yes, there are lots of jobs on campus, matter of fact I am working two right now. And everyone is really considerate because you get scheduled for work based on your class schedule, this gives you time to study as well as make some money to help with your upkeep and or contribute to your tuition.
