Auburn Theatre Auditions

Auburn would like to get the information about their Auburn University’s Department of Theatre’s upcoming Open house and Scholarship Audition Day.

Theatre has the potential to foster dialogue, alter perceptions, and inspire social change. The Auburn University Department of Theatre is dedicated to the education and professional training of theatre artists, scholars, and audiences within a liberal arts environment. The Department champions the interaction between theory and practice and produces citizen artists who advocate for the arts through their own work in local, national, and international communities. Auburn University theatre students think critically, creatively, and collaboratively and carry their knowledge from rehearsal spaces and classrooms to stages, campuses, and communities worldwide.

Due to Auburn’s “priority admission” application deadline of November 1 and its AUSOM Scholarship consideration deadline of December 1, Auburn University Theatre will now hold its annual on site scholarship/music theatre program admission auditions on Saturday, October 27th, 2018. This is a great opportunity for high school seniors  to tour our facility, meet with theatre faculty and students, and audition for theatre scholarships and admission to our music theatre degree program.

More information about their program can be found at the link below:

College Search and Sources

How do you learn more about your colleges of interest?

Students are often driven to learn more about colleges through websites like College Prowler, College Data, US News World & Report, and much more. Although these sites can be very helpful, they can also provide information that is inaccurate. So, how do students know what to believe and where to go for the correct information? I hope that my suggestions below will clarify these questions.

  1. What is the source data?
  2. How old is the data that you are reading from?
  3. Are the comments or information valid?
  4. Where are the comments and information coming from? And Why? Is it a thread of questions, is it straight from a university, and/or is it from an upset student?
  5. What is the reason for the author’s bias?

If you are reading an online article or a talk thread, be sure to find out when it was published, who wrote the article and why or why not is it a source of good information. Some articles are strictly feedback from angry students, upset parents or even the other side, happy consumers! When someone criticizes a school or anything about the community, it could be a lack of understanding on a particular circumstance, issue or problem that occurred on campus. Different authors have different opinions. It is important to challenge your own biases by gathering current information from the university. Therefore, visit the college’s website, speak to the Admissions Department and/or Department of interest. A great suggestion is to have the same three to five questions for all of your schools and compare them by answering the questions and verifying your source. Good luck!

 

Georgia Tech – Admissions

  • The Georgia Tech Scholars program is an automatic admission program which offers the first-year admission to Valedictorians and Salutatorians from all high schools in Georgia with more than 50 graduates.
  • Students can self-report their SAT, ACT and other standardized test scores to be used during the admission process, saving them time and money.
  • Tech will be using Slate.org as our high school counselor portal to communicate with you about applicants’ status and decisions, and this service is free to you.
  • Search for your school’s or region’s Admission Snapshot to bring admission and enrolled student statistics a little closer to home.

The above information is helpful for any student who is applying to Georgia Tech this fall!

Please let me know if you have any questions or need assistance!
