July 22, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - The DePauw University School of Music is cited as one of the top programs in the nation for creative students in the new, second edition of Creative Colleges: A Guide for Student Actors, Artists, Dancers, Musicians and Writers. The guide is aimed at college-bound students interested in the performing and creative arts.
Author Elaina Loveland researched programs from across the country and ultimately selected 200 art, drama, dance, music and creative writing programs in arts conservatories, liberal arts colleges and universities to recommend to potential students.
DePauw's School of Music is among the programs featured in the book, while its comprehensive listings also cite the University as a college for actors, artists and writers.
