Student organizations in the James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History offer opportunities for association with other art, art history and fashion majors outside the usual academic setting. The organizations usually hold special activities, field trips and other events relating to each field. Students are urged to participate in the student organizations because they provide an excellent opportunity to gain broadening experiences, including leadership positions. Check the various bulletin boards for information regarding these organizations or make inquiries in the main art office, 150 Art Building. The student organizations are:
