Anne Carncross (theatre) and 16 theatre majors and minors (joined by approximately 20 students from LSHS) once again helped with the Southwest Florida International Airport's Full-Scale Emergency Drill in October of 2015. Students had the opportunity to test not only their acting skills as injured passengers and workers, but also their theatrical makeup skills in creating the horrific wounds needed as part of the drill that is staged every three years.

Several piano students, including Pedro Che and Jason Gomez, have recently performed as part of Koreshan State Historic Site's Music Series, which is open to the public.

Anne Carncross (theatre) and her Stagecraft students volunteered for a combined 62 hours over 2 days on the build of a Habitat for Humanity home.
