All the faculty members I’ve worked with truly are working for you. They want you to be able to do what you want to do.
I met a lot of great people who turned out to be some of my best friends, and to actually run a live television show that airs on Lakeshore PBS is really, really valuable.

Sing, write, stand up for those who don’t have a voice! Our student organizations include theatre, honors society, the school paper, and jazz band.
The Roundtable Perspective is a collegiate television program produced by students and faculty of the Department of Communication and Creative Arts at PNW.
