Cara Smole

"I absolutely love my professors. I spend a lot of time with them from classes to rehearsals, which results in more of a mentor relationship. I think I have cried with all of them. That is one of the perks of a smaller department."
 - theatre major Cara Smole '22

Jon Schimpf

"Professor Hallstrom has taught me so much and has challenged the way that I view art and theatre. In Christian circles, art can often seem like an ostracizing activity, but Professor Hallstrom has shown me that art and theatre are not only ways we can worship the Lord, but they are also ways to minister to non-believers. By telling stories that teach biblical virtues in beautiful and thought-provoking ways, art and theatre can minister in ways that other forms of ministry may not be able to."
 - theatre major Jon Schimpf '23
