Associate Professor Lynn Jones has edited a new anthology of essays with Ashgate Publishing, Byzantine Images and their Afterlives: Essays in honor of Annemarie Weyl Carr. 


Interior Design faculty and students attended NeoCON in June. In addition to listening to keynote addresses by leading architects and designers, students and faculty visited showrooms to see the latest products and learn about current research.


Each summer, the School of Dance hosts 60 young dancers (accepted by audition) to participate in a Summer Dance Intensive. This summer, the workshop is being held June 15th through the 28th.


Catie Humphreys (BA Theatre, 2009) and David Kimple (BFA Acting, 2010) have spent the week in master-classes with Broadway and Off-Broadway professionals that are helping to bridge the gap between school and professional theatre.
