Monilola Olayemi Ilupeju, BFA Studio Art, 2018
The program opened me up to the wonders of conceptual art and performance and as I continued to study and make more work, I felt that I could finally begin to taste the thing that brings me the most peace and joy in life. Additionally, I developed and have maintained close friendships with a few of my professors who epitomize what it means to be both an excellent artist and a present mentor.
K. Rawald, BFA Studio Art & Minor in Psychology, 2019
My entrance into the Studio Art program was rather unexpected. Two years into the Psychology Department, I transferred, recognizing my need for the creative process and the sanctuary of the studio. But it was the BFA program, and its professors, that fostered an environment that enabled me to cultivate my practice, learning to articulate myself through my work in ways I could have never anticipated.
Nathan Storey Freeman, BFA Studio Art, 2018
The Studio Art program allowed me to experiment in all different medias, encouraging the development of an evolving interdisciplinary practice that I could maintain after graduation. Having close relationships with my professors and a private studio in the thesis year granted me tremendous growth.
Maya Beverly, BFA Studio Art, 2020
The Studio Art program allowed me the freedom to explore different mediums and cultivate my interests. Having my own studio my senior year enabled me to start having foundational conversations about my practice; that I still reflect on. I formed meaningful connections with other students and faculty, who continue to push and inspire me.
