Students in the College of Fine Arts believe in the power of expression, the beauty of interpretation, and the possibilities of material. Professionally connected faculty artists nurture each student’s creativity, curiosity, and collaborative skills through individualized training that challenges, motivates, and inspires. Our nationally recognized programs prepare students to be thinkers, responsible citizens, and motivated artists, driven to succeed in competitive industries. Gifts will directly benefit students through need-and talent-based scholarships. Gifts can also support and establish professorships that draw industry leaders to campus.
"When my mother was alive, she told me how important it was to her that I went to college. After she passed, I made it my responsibility to fulfill her wish. As an out-of-state student, tuition can be terrifying, and as a first-generation college student, there is a lot of pressure to finish school. Because of generous donors, I received a scholarship that allows me to focus on getting good grades, building myself as an artist, and graduating in four years."
