Returning Home

   I have been away from home for so long.   The buildings have been abandoned, appears to be for decades. The roads and sidewalks haven't been maintained. Glass is in the streets and rubble is scattered across the land. I am surprised none of these structures have not collapsed on themselves. The war drove thousands of us out to escape the onslaught.

We have a great program that allows students to jump back and forth amongst a variety of courses from studio production, to marketing. Graphic novels to animation.Look to one of our recent graduates, Samantha Goodgrades. She recently won the "Best New Director" award at the Sundance Film Festival. She won the award w/ a Rom-Com, based around two students in a small and quirky liberal arts college (Like us).Speaking as a Junior Shepherd student who switched to COMM, I can personally say that the staff in the COMM department know what they are talking about and teaching because they have worked in those fields for many years, as well as studied in those fields. They are very personable and very eager to jump on the opportunity to help someone with an issue, or to give any advice...
