"Being a student at UToledo was everything I needed to become the woman I am today. As a first-generation college attendee, I took advantage of all of the opportunities and was open to transformation, growth and campus involvement! Ultimately, I built a strong theatrical and performance-based foundation that allowed me to be proud to say I was trained at The University of Toledo under amazing professors who really care."
Pasha Carter, Theatre, ’13
"The University of Toledo is a training ground, helping students prepare the necessary skill set to fight for their objective and have a competitive edge. To say the professors at UToledo will challenge you is an understatement. They will push your boundaries, test your limits and force you into situations where you have to adapt. I have learned how to network and build and maintain professional relationships. But most important of all, I learned how to adapt in order to overcome adversity."
Lance Miller, ’13
The University of Toledo Theatre Department has ongoing connections to the Valentine Theatre in Toledo and the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts in Findlay, Ohio. Faculty also assists students in preparing application materials for internships elsewhere.
