With three exceptional on-campus performance venues, music and dance majors have ample opportunity to perform with both student and resident professional ensembles. Fashion merchandising majors complete their own apparel line and have the opportunity to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Art majors present their works in the annual senior thesis exhibition at the on-campus Cummings Art Gallery. Students of any major can submit any creative works to the Lumen, the student-produced multimedia arts journal – or even serve on the editorial team.
