My school is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Being able to do something to what I love and present it on stage often times during the school year is exciting. I like how there are super well know guests of every kind of talent come and visit our college and talk to the classes and inspire the environment and energy. The students are always doing something with their majors and it would always be different with too much creative, which is what makes them epic! I'm going to spend the rest of my years here most definitely.

I am not that familiar with the job placement opportunities in other schools. However, in the school of dance, the dean and faculty work to place students and give them good recommendations to get jobs as soon as they graduate. Also, the dance alumni network is crazy good!

I attend an all arts conservatory, so there are zero organized sports on campus. And I think everyone is okay with that. We are highly involved with art and refining our skills that no one is all that interested in huge sports teams. There are other activities such as movie on the hill, or karaoke that give us something fun and relaxing to look forward too. The dance studios and facilities are well kept and the gym is fairly well equipped for general physical activity needs.
