Foothill Campus Abroad In London
I visited London the week of October 4 to visit our Campus Abroad Program at the University of London. Music Theatre Instructor Milissa Carey and Language Arts Instructor Scott Lankford are leading our students in Foothill classes as well as helping them get to know London. The program is amazing, our students are having an incredible experience visiting London, traveling in the UK and France, and the staff of AIFS, the company we are partnering with to facilitate the program, are awesome!
This is a wonderful experience for both students and instructors! I encourage you to spread the word about Campus Abroad to any and all interested students for our Campus Abroad Program in Florence next Fall!

What Happened to Mardi Gras?
In my transition to running the East side of the campus, Mardi Gras fell off my radar, sorry! I can start it again, as Stephanie mentioned many of you have asked her. BUT I really need to hear from you about it as no one has asked me. If you would like to see Mardi Gras return, please email me!
Got An Item?Are you performing or exhibiting somewhere? Giving a presentation? I'll be happy to put it in the TT! Items run once, so try to send it to me the week before your event.
