2014/15 BFSDoArt Student Convocation



At the beginning of every academic year, we invite all BFSDoArt students to join together to kick off the new academic year. During the BFSDoArt Convocation we welcome new students, introduce faculty and go over the year’s events and important student announcements. In addition, we hand out department goodies and invite others to do so as well (like Dick Blick and Utrecht)!

Convocation will begin at 1 p.m. in the Black Box Theater located on the first floor of the Center for Art & Theatre. Once announcements conclude, stick around for a free pizza social and meet your BFSDoArt faculty, staff and fellow classmates!

“It is important for students to take part in convocation because it creates an informative outline for not only the semester but the academic year,” said Department Chair Robert Farber. “This is a great opportunity for me to meet students and students to meet their faculty and classmates as well as learn about useful regional and campus resources for artists and industry professionals.”

As usual, the BFSDoArt has an exciting year lined up and we can’t wait to share our plans with our students.
