Some with passports in hand and others with noses in textbooks, our students are spending the summer months practicing their passions and tightening their grasps of their art forms.
We've asked a few students from each of our four academic areas to share with us their summer stories in a blog post. So while they're jetsetting across the country (or world!) and gaining incredible experience at camps, agencies, companies and festivals, we'll be living vicariously through their exciting summer exploits here on the Fine Print.
