Both clubs host auditions for students that would like to participate in their spring shows. They also teach a recreational class for beginners and those not interested in joining the company.
Student clubs are a great way to empower and enrich yourself while meeting fellow Dons who share the same passion. Once you’re on campus, you’ll have more than 100 student clubs and organizations to join, including:
