There are many areas of the arts that can be practiced during college years but none are so integrated as acting. In college you can be involved in the arts as a painter, illustrator, dancer, or singer but acting really combines so many aspects of the arts into one. Painters spend a lot of time being solitary, dancers engage in performing arts but rarely speak with their mouths on stage, and singers while being vocally expressive do not really get to interact with a set or be involved with dialogue. The amount of interaction that college actors get with other actors and artists really makes college acting one of the greatest ways that a college student can become artistically aware.
Acting combines so many different aspects of the arts including expression through movement, dialogue, miming, and improvisation. This can be done on the actors own, together with other actors or with objects. Actors also get to move around a set and therefore get to interact with lighting and set designers as well. Actors work with directors, understudies, and writers of the script. Much research is also done into the influences behind the script and the roles that are being played.
