Student Groups and Scholarships
Drama ClubThrough the exclusive use of its members and partners, Drama Club promotes the importance of Theatre Arts within our surrounding communities, and within the community as a whole. We are constantly looking for members that share our passion for theatre as an exquisite art form. Please stop by the Theatre Arts Department "Lobby" (directly outside of the Black Box Theatre) every Wednesday at Noon to inquire about our organization or visit our Campus Connect page.
The primary goal of the peer mentor program is to partner successful returning theatre company
members with new theatre majors, both traditional freshmen and transfer students, in order to
help them have a smoother, more positive, productive transition into UW-Parkside, the Theatre
Arts Department, and the many academic, artistic, and company expectations of the university
and the professional theatre training company.
Many great talent and academic scholarship opportunities exist at UW-Parkside for Theatre Arts Majors. All Theatre Arts Majors wishing consideration for the following scholarships must fill out the standard scholarship forms available on the UWP Scholarships website. All Theatre Arts majors are expected to complete scholarship application forms annually.
For more information about Theatre Scholarships, please contact Professor Jody Sekas, Theatre Arts Chair, at 262.595.2967 or at email@example.com.
