It's been a big month for Metro State -- or Metro State University of Denver, according to the law signed by Governor John Hickenlooper yesterday. Not only does the school get a new name, but its theater department recently won accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Theatre. And not for just one of its programs, but all three: the BA in theater, the BFA in musical theater and the BFA in applied theater.
About time Metro gets some respect, says one grad.
Doesn't surprise me. Metro State is the best institution in the State. The Students are hard workers. Usually Athletes, talented full-time Professionals, dedicated full-time students -- and in most cases, Young Mother and Fathers.
I owe a lot to the school. Got me out of New Jersey, unfavorable conditions, to offer me a second chance to run Track and be apart of something bigger. I wasn't the youngest person at the time either. If they come calling for a check, I'll ask, "How much?"
