Graduating from college is an achievement, and for Kalamazoo College students, it is the chance to build upon other significant experiences and create one’s own life path.

Here in the Department of Theatre Arts, alumni stay connected to the department and each other through the Kalamazoo Theatre Arts Network (KTAN).

First formed by Ed Menta before the days of Facebook, KTAN keeps our theatre major alumni connected and informed about what everyone is doing. We have over 350 theatre alumni connected through KTAN.
