College is one of the busiest periods in life. Here in the Department of Theatre &
Dance at the University of Memphis there are always faculty, friends, and peers willing
to help if you need it. The life of a theatre artist is often very different from
other disciplines. We work long hours, late hours, weird hours, and sometime just
too many hours.
Remember to save a few moments for yourself. Sit, relax, watch other people, whatever
clears your mind. Most importantly, take time to eat and stay healthy.
Be courteous to your peers. College is about learning and having fun (not the other
way around). Common distractions like cell phones, pagers, and other electronics should
be turned off in class, rehearsal and productions. Be on time! Late arrivals are the
biggest distraction and persistent tardiness will often effect your grade and the
quality of productions. Following these tips will help you build a reputation as a
dependable, serious theatre artist.
All currently enrolled theatre students may login under the undergraduate and/or graduate
tab to receive the student handbook, production calendars, rehearsal schedules, mandatory
meetings, and pertinent information and alerts.
