Student Organizations

Students exhibit, collaborate and work closely with professors and younger students—even those of elementary school age—in a vibrant department abounding with opportunities for interaction.

Student groups like Arts Alive!, Oz Design Club, and the Student Art Exhibition Committee are among the most active clubs on campus and are all recognized student organizations. Working as individual groups and collaboratively, events by our student organizations attract people from across the campus and the community.
