The PVA Majors RAP is planned for 38 first-year students who have been admitted as Art, Art History, Architecture, Dance, Music and Theater majors. It is designed to give students the structure and support to succeed as an artist and scholar.
As an artist, designer, or performer, your success is often the result of both individual effort and creative collaboration. Students in visual and performing arts majors tend to have rigorous schedules filled with hours of required practice and studio time thus making it difficult for them to join most RAP offerings. However, this RAP was built with these considerations in mind, attending to the particular needs, goals and schedules of aspiring artists!
Living with students in related majors will enable students to be on similar schedules for study, class and recreation.
