Arts and Culture
Enriching environments and student development
The arts enrich the college environment, student development and community engagement. Artwork is displayed all throughout our campus; students, faculty and staff enjoy the multitude of benefits of art as an everyday experience. Art students attend campus exhibitions, receptions, artist talks and panel discussions to hear the featured artists discuss their work and practice. Art faculty use the college’s extensive collection to help instruct students in a wide range of artistic possibilities and harness the creative power of the individual.
