The Arts Internship has provided me with an opportunity to practice skills and knowledge I have learned in my studies and apply them to important projects....

Four weeks to go until... ...the first day of classes! Hard to believe it's only a month away. As we head towards Orientation Week, time travel back to 1998 with us.
