We believe where we've been matters as much as where we're going.

 

The great service which education must perform

is to confirm our faith in the world, establish our

settled convictions, and maintain an open mind.

The heritage of all the past is neither mean nor

insignificant. It is a high estate.Calvin Coolidge      

Free speech does not live many hours after free 

industry and free commerce die.Herbert Hoover

Ave Maria University Shakespeare In Performance

Shakespeare In Performance investigates early modern acting styles, thrust stages practices, and how an acting troupe cooperates and functions in the  preparation and performance of plays.

Be inspired and take action

To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.Theodore Roosevelt
