“My favorite thing about Anathan was the faculty. The environment was great, the students were great and the program was great; but all of that was made possible by work and dedication of the faculty. I had the chance to work on every main stage I was in steubenville for, and anytime I worked with a professor I learned invaluable skills and built strong relationships that essential for quality actor/director communication.
