Bus Reimbursement Program

Northrop is dedicated to making it possible for all students to experience the performing arts! Studies show that the arts cultivate creativity, boost critical thinking, and help students make meaningful connections to the world around them. With reduced ticket prices and a bus reimbursement program, Northrop makes the thrill of witnessing world-class dance and the opportunity to imagine themselves on a college campus a reality for students.
