PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State University Department of Theater may survive the budget ax by merging with the University of Idaho Department of Theater.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports they've presented the idea to WSU Provost and Executive Vice President Warwick Bayly.

The WSU department has 105 students and was listed for elimination last month in the university's preliminary budget.

WSU dance instructor Crystal Fullmer said both departments would grow together because WSU's department focuses more on its undergraduate studies and the UI department seems to focus more on its master's program.
