Student Life

The Office of Student Life provides a comprehensive learning environment where students are challenged and supported in the context of community, civic engagement and leadership, and cognitive development to become successful independent artists.

These pages have been designed with you, the student, in mind, so you can find the information you need and to provide timely, adequate information.
