Janine Campeau-Ewald Janine Campeau-Euwald - “'The great thing about theater is that even if you are not good looking, you can act like you are, and people will perceive you to be attractive.' This profound quote came from a fellow student during rehearsals for Finian’s Rainbow back in 1971. The skills I learned from professors like Wayne Pevey, Richard Johnson, David Miller, Harriet Novick, and most fondly Barbara Baird, allowed me to “act” my way into personally fulfilling if not financially rewarding opportunities over the years. Working with Ed Haines on costumes for Mother Courage though was the best reward of all, it

Steve Inglima Steven Inglima - All the world's a stage"... and there's a lot of bad acting out there. But, by observing and focusing on what makes good communication (and good acting), my time at Suffolk County Community College was very well spent in honing those skills... because regardless in what field we choose to earn a living, each and every one of us will benefit significantly from effective communication. If all of us are going to be "actors" anyway, why not be conscious and effecitve at it"
