For students with courses or majors in the visual and performing arts, this is the place to get hands-on experience. Among other things, the department features graphic arts labs (including a well-equipped computer graphics lab), TV and photography studios, and video editing suites.

In the 550-seat multi-purpose Theater, students from all majors and interests can enjoy a wide variety of cultural events, including guest lectures, musical performances, and stage plays. Rehearsals and smaller productions occur in the more intimate Black Box Theater, another part of the Theater complex. And when the weather is nice, you can step outside and relax in the courtyard Poetry Garden.
