An investigation of the intersection of natural and manmade environments for live performance. We explore the thematic and material presentation of nature on stage over the past one hundred years. Readings are taken from the disciplines of theatre, architecture, industrial design, and business. Our study culminates in a proposal for a local live performance event that foregrounds nature, utilizes local and sustainable resources, and has a positive ecological and community impact. Coursework emphasizes the development of effective oral and written communication skills with a focus on description, summary, and critical thinking.

“Transcript Freeze” in effect May 5

Posted: April 30, 2015

Please note that, beginning May 5, a “transcript freeze” will be in effect for current students to allow posting and processing of Spring grades for all students and of degrees for May graduates. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded by May 18, 2015. If you have a deadline date before or near May 5, 2015, we recommend that you request your transcript(s) before May 5 so that they can be processed before the transcript freeze goes into effect.

Students wishing to have spring semester grades should indicate “AFTER GRADES ARE POSTED” when ordering through the WebAdvisor Transcript on Demand service, otherwise, they will be processed “now” (i.e., without your Spring grades) and you will be charged.


Final transcripts for seniors with your degree (BA or BS) and major posted will also be processed by May 18, but you MUST indicate “AFTER DEGREE IS CONFERRED” when ordering through the WebAdvisor Transcript on Demand service.

Questions or concerns? Please contact Pam McCurdy, Transcript Coordinator, at 814-332-2357 or pmccurdy@allegheny.edu

Fall schedule adjustments

Posted: April 24, 2015

WebAdvisor will be closed on Monday, April 27, to make some final schedule adjustments. On Tuesday, April 28, preregistration will re-open for all students. Unrestricted courses may be added via WebAdvisor at that time if seats are available. However,  you must use an Add card (available April 28 in the Registrar’s Office) if:

1. The course is full. Contact the instructor to see if it is possible to add additional students.
2. The course has a “signature” restriction (indicated by “Yes” in the Sign Req column under Search for sections in WebAdvisor). Please note that many instructors add signature restrictions to previously unrestricted courses so that they can give preference to students on their waiting lists; if WebAdvisor is not allowing you to register for a course, check to see whether it now has a signature restriction.
3. The course is restricted to a particular registration class or classes (e.g. FR/SO). Contact the instructor to see if it might be possible to add a course even if you are not a member of the indicated class. If the faculty member agrees, his/her signature on an Add card will permit you to register for the course.
Add cards must be turned into the Registrar’s Office by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5.

WebAdvisor will remain open through the end of June, and you may continue to Add unrestricted courses or Drop any course online throughout that period. However, preregistration remains limited to a maximum of 18 credits. Additional courses may be added in the Fall, after the incoming first-year students have registered.
