Tuition is $150 per child, and a limited number of spaces and scholarships are still available and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The original scholarship deadline of April 30 has been extended until all scholarships have been given out.
“USAO has always and will always attract the brightest minds,” said Dr. Sanders Huguenin to a record-breaking crowd of 1,600 at the University of Science and Arts spring commencement.

More than 100 graduating students will receive their degrees during an outdoor commencement ceremony at the University of Science and Arts on April 21. At 8 p.m., the university will hold its first outdoor graduation service in nearly 50 years.

Morning winds and rain couldn’t stop more than 2,000 area students from flocking to the University of Science and Arts for the annual Spring Triad event. The Triad, composed of the Montmartre Chalk Art Contest, Scholastic Meet and Droverstock music festival, drew students from nearly 80 schools across the state to the USAO campus April 6.
Is it possible to fuse country music with Motown tunes? At the University of Science and Arts, Joe Settlemires and his Showband will attempt the musical feat on April 14. The free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Davis Hall Theatre.
Although the Showband generally is known for its swing style and pop pieces, this concert brings more of a country flair to the table. And for a good reason: special guest fiddle player Monte Gaylord is joining the band for the special event.
