NYU Stella Adler Studio

My sibling is at NYU in the Stella Adler acting studio. She is a freshman and is very frustrated with the lack of rigor the acting program offers. She is very disappointed and questioning if other people had this experience. Other students have also shared this feeling, not just about Stella Adler studio but also about the studios they are attending. Based on your experience, did you feel it was a quality program worth attending for 4 years? Do the studio classes improve after the 1st semester? I would really appreciate your honesty. Thanks.

Common freshman course on the history and culture of Chicago?

Is there a common course at one of the big universities in Chicago, that all of the freshmen take, which focuses on Chicago history and culture? Perhaps called something like "the Chicago experience"? I thought that this was done at the University of Chicago, but I cannot find it on their website. Could it be another school?

Flip Flopping Daughter

My daughter has announced she doesn't want to live on campus next year (freshman). We agreed months ago she would live at school (an hour commute). Any personal experience with changing your mind? I'm concerned about her driving daily on congested highway (NJ) and about her not facing her fears.
