The Arts Community is designed to expand student participants involvement with the arts by engaging in the arts through structured and unstructured experiences. Students will live on one floor together in Guinn Hall and participate in a minimum of three activities relating to the arts each semester as well as lending support to other members of the community through attendance at recitals, performances, and exhibits. Faculty and School sponsored trips to area performances and exhibits are also a part of this dynamic community.

The Arts Living Learning Community is supported by faculty and staff in the School of the Arts and in University Housing. Students majoring in art, dance, drama, and music are invited to apply to live in this exciting living learning community. A $50 activity fee will be assessed to each student accepted into the program to help cover the cost for field trips and other special programs. This will be assessed directly to the student’s University account.
