The Community

Students attend the Eastern Oregon Film Festival in Downtown La Grande

Campus is just four blocks from downtown La Grande and students ride public transit for free, making it easy to get to the farmer’s market, eateries, shops and theaters.

“I earned my degree in a field that everyone warned me would merit no income: theatre. I am happy to announce that everyone was wrong. What is theatre? Storytelling. While I did not immediately succeed as an actress, I discovered a different venue that used my theatre skillset – marketing, which is also storytelling. Utilizing my performance knowledge and theatrical design skills, I have become a successful marketer. Theatre gives me the confidence to present myself to any audience, and I found that there are more places to ‘perform’ than a stage.”
