Student Blog: Life as the NewBEE
by Student Blogger: Grace O’Malley - February 19, 2024

I am a walking SCAD advertisement - my love for the school is contagious and my knowledge about it is endless. I would advise anyone with a dream to consider the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Student Blog: It's Okay to Transfer Schools
by Student Blogger: Grace Schofield - February 19, 2024

And don’t you dare settle for anything less than what you want and deserve. Because once you find that perfect fit for you, it is amazing. Transferring was so so scary, but that fear is nothing compared to the joy I have now.

Student Blog: Why Audition?
by Student Blogger: Ellie Weaver - February 19, 2024

You’re walking through your school’s hallway and stumble across a poster that says “Spring Musical Auditions! Sign up today!” You think to yourself: Why should I do that? Participating in your school’s musical is a great way to grow and learn skills that can be used beyond the stage. 

Student Blog: Back To School - Final Semester Edition
by Student Blogger: Victoria Vorpagel - February 19, 2024

I would graduate tomorrow if I could, but I am terrified to leave high school. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been dreaming about going to college since middle school. But leaving the same people I’ve gone to school with for four years, some even longer, and leaving my school music and theatre departments is the hardest part about looming graduation.

Student Blog: One Show to the Next
by Student Blogger: Natalie Liew - February 19, 2024

I have never been more attached to a show like You’re A Catch, and if I could go back to that week, I would. I’m currently in another show this week for Winchester’s Performing Arts society and even among a different group, I have several cast members singing songs from You’re A Catch that are just constantly stuck in their heads.

Student Blog: Back to School as a Theatre BA Student
by Student Blogger: Carly GALBRETH - February 19, 2024

I blinked, and I’m four weeks into my second semester of freshman year at Wake Forest University. Already, I've been assistant stage manager of a professional workshop and started a new job in the scene shop. I have so many exciting theatre opportunities on the horizon in the coming months!

Student Blog: My Goals For 2024
by Student Blogger: Tatiana Atehortua - February 21, 2024

I'm looking forward to seeing what this last semester has in store for me, and I'm excited for what will come my way after I graduate. I hope you all have a fun, exciting semester, and that you accomplish any goals you may have!

Student Blog: The Art of Self-Advertisement
by Student Blogger: Brynna Weir - February 13, 2024

When you are not in the position to be auditioning, no matter the reason, self-advertisement will be your best friend. Social Media has become one of the greatest tools an actor can use. Bonus: casting directors have them, too; you never know when they could stumble across one of your videos. Use the tools you already have and the sky’s the limit!

Student Blog: Back to School!
by Student Blogger: Ava Karlstad - February 12, 2024

Once a theatre kid always a theatre kid, right?  Absolutely.  This was something I truly realized when I got to college and something I took somewhat for granted in high school.  I started my first year at the University of Southern California as a mathematics major pursuing a pre-medicine track.  I thought this was fulfilling until I began to acknowledge the part of me that missed theatre and the artistic dimension of myself.  It took me one semester to change my major to political science and two to declare a minor in musical theater.  Finally, I feel I have found my niche.

Student Blog: Back to School: Fashion School in Italy
by Student Blogger: Ivana Solis - February 7, 2024

Going to a college in Italy has a very different system to the ones in the US or even in any other parts of the world. Contrary to my friends in other colleges I do not pick any of the classes that I take. This semester I am taking some of the same classes as last semester and some of them change.

Student Blog: New Semester New Plans
by Student Blogger: Elizabeth Charcas - February 5, 2024

As a high school student, I used to attend classes for a whole year, during which we focused not only on learning the course material but also on socializing and building relationships with our classmates and teachers. We had plenty of time to participate in extracurricular activities, attend school events, and engage in other social activities. However, when I got to college, I quickly realized that things were different.

Student Blog: Academic Honesty
by Student Blogger: Elizabeth Charcas - February 5, 2024

​​​​​​​Academic integrity is a fundamental aspect of education that involves submitting your work honestly and responsibly, without copying or plagiarizing from others. In today's world, where AI has made it easy to generate written content for assignments, essays, and answers, students must be truthful about the work they submit for school.

Student Blog: My Grudge with AI and the Importance of Academic Integrity
by Student Blogger: avery lakoff - February 3, 2024

When you think of things that change with time, most people don't think of academic integrity, but as we create more tech and AI, academic integrity becomes harder to achieve, though keeping to it pays off.

Student Blog: Next Stop: Rejection
by Student Blogger: Madi Spear - February 3, 2024

have learned how to be rejected with grace and dignity. I proved to myself that hearing the word no is not the end of the world. It starts with some small experiments on getting rejected. What can we as artists do to face our rejection head on? 

Student Blog: No Doppelgängers: Academic Integrity
by Student Blogger: Madi Spear - February 3, 2024

It’s not often as a performer we can send our doppelgänger into our performances either. People will know! It goes the same for your papers. 

Student Blog: AI's Effect on Academic Dishonesty
by Student Blogger: Megan Howarth - January 31, 2024

As the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) continues to permeate various facets of education, its impact on academic dishonesty has become a subject of intense scrutiny. The advent of advanced technologies has not only transformed the learning landscape but has also presented novel challenges in maintaining academic integrity.

Student Blog: Maintaining Discipline
by Student Blogger: Olivia Mathis - January 31, 2024

I admire the fact that IAMT is untraditional. For instance, because nothing is formally graded, it motivates students to work hard, for no reason other than personal drive. It is one thing to be disciplined enough to get an A in a class, but it is another to learn how to push yourself when there is no immediate gratification for your efforts.

Student Blog: The Return: Life at School After Winter Break
by Student Blogger: Jules Donohue - January 31, 2024

Tis the season to talk about the return to school after a long Winter Break. I’ve been back at school for almost a week now and have had a little trouble adjusting since I was home for so long. I’m sure a lot of my fellow college students can understand how I feel. Cont.

Student Blog: Did You Just Say 'Theatre Competition?'
by Student Blogger: Austin Watts - January 31, 2024

Theatre is usually designed to be a collaborative art form, but competitions for high-school thespians give us the opportunity to express our suppressed competitive instincts and use the skills we have developed in a “win-or-lose” environment.

Student Blog: KIMBERLY AKIMBO and the Plight of Growing Up
by Student Blogger: Kimberly Wilkinson - January 30, 2024

Turning 20 is something I’ve been dreading for a while, and have had a lot of panicked, scared feelings about. Seeing “Kimberly Akimbo” on Broadway a few months ago was healing for me.

Student Blog: Repertoire: How I Pick and Practice Pieces Each Semester
by Student Blogger: Tatiana Atehortua - January 31, 2024

My best advice would be: listen to your mentor's suggestions, but don't feel like you have to incorporate everything they say into your performance. Never be afraid to say something like 'can we try it this way instead?' Not all your ideas will stick in the end, but they are all worth trying out.

Student Blog: Dealing with Burnout
by Student Blogger: Kimberly Wilkinson - January 28, 2024

I find my worst bouts of burnout are at the beginning of the semester. When I'm faced with reminders of the sheer amount of work that goes into a semester and have to recommit myself to doing it all again. It's hard. It really feels so daunting.

Student Blog: Taking a Step Behind the Curtain
by Student Blogger: Ellie Weaver - January 28, 2024

As a younger performer, I thought the best thing I could do for my growth was get on stage. But in reality, I learned just as many lessons about the theatre industry backstage. My experience behind the scenes taught me things about theatre productions that I would have never learned otherwise!

Student Blog: Academic 'Burn Out' is Real… Is the Pressure Cooker Cooking You?
by Student Blogger: Mya Bodnick - January 28, 2024

Truthfully, the never-ending hustle of a theatre student is completely reflective of the industry itself. In contrast, at least athletes are provided an off-season where training alters in intensity and cadence as they partake in maintenance and recovery mode. However, a life without breaks is simply not sustainable.
