Improvisational comedy class participants recently played out a vacation to Middle Earth complete with wizards, monsters and pointy-eared elves. Sponsored by the Chickasha Area Arts Council, instructor Collin Andrulonis taught the basics of theatrical improv to a full class last weekend at the USAO Davis Hall Little Theatre. The two-day workshop ended Jan. 21 with an improvisation performance for family and friends.
CHICKASHA – Ten artists from the University of Science and Arts recently were selected from more than 200 artists across Oklahoma to show their stuff at a competitive statewide art show.

CHICKASHA – Students at the University of Science and Arts just got a new perk thrown into their enrollment package: free, legal music downloads. By partnering with high speed Internet service provider OneNet, Ruckus Network, Inc. now offers unlimited free song downloads to all USAO students with a student email address.
The new service was made possible by an agreement with Ruckus, USAO and OneNet, coordinated by Lynn Boyce, chief information officer and director of information, research and network services.
CHICKASHA – Every conflict needs resolution and behind every resolution is a mediator. To that end, the University of Science and Arts is hosting a free basic mediator training course Feb. 7-9 in the Emerson Room.
