What a magnanimous pleasure it is to have a place of service at ETBU.  Our School of Communication and Performing Arts is an active and thriving place where students grow and faculty motivate and encourage.  Each academic year brings new opportunities and exciting concerts and productions.  I am delighted that you have found our online home, and I hope that you will soon visit us on campus.  See the information below and the online calendar of events to select the best time to visit.  We are anxious to see you at one of our upcoming events.  Feel free to contact me for any reason if we can be of service to you.  Come see for yourself how we are "Engaging Minds, Embracing Faith, and Empowering Leaders."

TO PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS: I invite you set up your campus visit audition today.  Once you meet our faculty and students and see for yourself the quality of the education we offer, I am confident that you will choose ETBU as your college home.  During your visit you will also meet the individuals who can help you make your college dreams come true.  Our enrollment management staff will guide you through the admissions and financial aid process.  The personal attention you receive through the process will begin from your initial contact with us and continue throughout your college experience and into your professional life as a proud ETBU graduate.  Come see us soon, and give us the opportunity to show you why ETBU should be your college home.

TO ARTS PATRONS:  I hope you will join us for our next performance event.  You will be delighted at the exceptional quality of the performances and the outstanding talent of our faculty and students.  ETBU offers many performances events each semester, and you are sure to find many that you would enjoy.  Our Department of Music presents performances by our choral and band programs, chamber music concerts, and several faculty and guest artist recitals.  Our Department of Theatre Arts presents a wide array of productions each year, and our two departments combine forces each year to present either a large-scale musical theatre production or an opera performance.  We utilize many performance venues on campus and throughout the community, so read the event calendar carefully.  Feel free to contact the School of Communication and Performing Arts Office at 903-923-2158 if you have any questions.  I look forward to seeing you very soon.
