Art Student Testimonials

Read what students have to say about our Art & Design program.

"The Art Department is special because everyone is family there. We all make such different things but come together and offer support or critique of each others' work from different perspectives. We learn from not only professors but one another. We all know the struggles of having to pull all-nighters to get a project done. We also know the satisfaction of completing a really great piece and are always there to help each other in doing so even if it's not in an area you're necessarily great at. The Art Department really is like a home away from home.”

"In my time with the Graphic Design program I have grown so much as an artist and as a professional. The faculty are so knowledgeable and really push students to create the best work that they possibly can. They have helped me to create a portfolio of work that I am very proud of and prepared me for working in the design field.” 

"In my own experience, the Art Department is giving students a lot of opportunities to develop their art skills. The professors are friendly, helpful, and encourage students to do their best. I am also glad that we have a lot of events and exhibitions that allows us to have a bigger view from other artists' perspectives."

"The Art Department supports each other like a close-knit community/family. It makes me happy that there are so many opportunities to submit my work to shows off and on campus, interact with visiting artists, and learn from my peers as well as instructors.”

"I love the Art Department because of the people that are in it. Our professors truly care about their students and want us to succeed. They take the time to talk and work with every one of us in class and push us to do our best. I also love the students because everyone is passionate about what they're doing and we all support each other. It's great to be a part of a department that is so helpful and supportive."
