Your college search is a lot like planting a garden. First you till the soil. Then you sow the seeds. Next you weed out unwanted growth and then you reap the harvest!

US Performing Arts has the most incredible theater intensive this summer at Santa Fe University of Art & Design. Why? Because many years ago I had an epiphany.
