The Tepper Semester is an acting student's dream come true. Being part of it, was the best decision I made in college. Seeing Broadway shows every week, working with numerous casting directors as my teachers and having master classes with well respected professionals in the business were just a few of the things that taught me what it takes to be a professional actor in New York City. I would do it all over again if I could!”
