SAA Alum (2012) Joseph S. auditioned and was selected to the highly selective Bachelor of Fine Arts program at University of Illinois at Chicago this fall.

A large portion of graduates from UIC leave having been directed by Mr. Peyankov, and most do tech work for Goodman, Lookingglass, or Steppenwolf theaters.

A National Merit Scholar and James Scholar, he attends the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
