Fine Arts

Make the Arts part of your life! Perform a solo or audition for an ensemble;  make a painting, throw a pot, or take photos;  travel abroad, research with a faculty mentor or work independently; or join the costume or set crew or act on the main stage!

In Olin Hall, we help students develop and shape their passion for their arts, whether it be in Art, Art History, Music, Theatre or a combination of several areas.
We are home to four majors:

student painting at an easel


Osiris & Hathor at Seti I Abydos

Art History

students playing instruments


students constructing a set
