Milo Cameron

Major/Year: B.F.A. in Drama (Acting). Third Year.

Favourite thing about training at U of S:My favorite thing about training at the U of S is the variety of knowledge you gain in the Drama program. Along with the quintessential acting training, I have so far accumulated knowledge in such areas as stage management, costume design, and set design (to name a few). There are also high expectations from your professors to deliver the best work possible. I love that type of working environment because it forces you to put in 110%. I feel I have soaked up so much knowledge from the past two years in the program and I cannot wait to see what I else I can gain in my remaining two years.

Sarah Grummett

Major/Year: B.F.A. in Drama (Acting). Fourth Year. 

Favourite thing about training at U of S:The Department of Drama has provided me with so many opportunities beyond what's assigned in class. Whether it's writing new plays, creating short films or acting on the Greystone Stage, this department is a place where creativity and new ideas flourish. In class, you are pushed to your emotional and physical limits, but it pays off. Not only does the program make you a better actor, it makes you a better person by teaching you teamwork, respect and determination.

Brandon A. Parfitt

Major/Year: B.F.A. in Design. Fourth year. 

Favourite thing about training at U of S:I love the friendly atmosphere and encouraging attitudes that everyone has in the department. Throughout my time in the department I've managed to try out so many things. I've designed shows, built props, written and acted in plays, created a show from lights and sound and have met an amazing group of students and faculty. No one here ever puts down your ideas or stifles your creativity. This department is like family.
