What is College Discovery Day?
A one-stop shop for theatre students in NC - NCTC College Discovery Day is the only event in the state that connects you with NC college theatre programs. You can audition for college representatives or present your portfolio, and your parents have the opportunity to attend workshops, covering everything from financial aid, to careers a theatre major can pursue. Students and parents visit the College Fair to meet over 30 theatre departments, all in one place, in one day!
Why Should I Attend?
NCTC College Discovery Day is North Carolina’s best opportunity for high school students to get involved with theatre programs across the state. You will get to meet with the #1 school on your list and discover new schools!
Hear what College Discovery Day and NCTC alumni, Brad Mcbride, Koko Watkins, Jensen Fleisher, Tyler Cox, Casey Daniel and Tyler Garner have to say about this special event.
Who should attend?
Any high school student in grades 9-12 who is interested in studying theatre in college can register! Whether you are planning to pursue a theatre major or minor, this event will help you find the right school. Colleges are not just interested in seniors, they’re excited to meet students in grades 9-11 too! Parents are also welcome to register, to learn more about the opportunities students can have as a theatre major, and speak to current college theatre students.
How is this different from other College Fairs?
At most college fairs, the admissions department is chosen to represent their school. They may not know the specific theatre department details you are requesting. At NCTC College Discovery Day, you meet with theatre professors and current students from the schools that interest you! They can answer questions about majors offered, performance opportunities, student life and more!
