Think a science school can't be creative? Think again
Play an instrument? Don't leave it gathering dust at your parents' house. Enjoy drama? Bring that star attitude to school. The arts are alive and well at Rose-Hulman. Here are performing arts opportunities that will have you starring on the stage of our acclaimed concert venue, Hatfield Hall:
- Concert Band
- Jazz Band
- Jazz Combo
- Musical Theatre Pit Orchestra
- Pep Band
- Rose Chorus
- Rose Drama Club
- String Ensemble
Maybe you're more a patron of the arts? Cool! It gives the students in the groups above a much-needed audience. Besides that, Rose-Hulman constantly brings nationally and internationally known speakers, dance troupes, comedians, musicals and more to Hatfield Hall for your (and the community's) viewing pleasure.
