What Our Students Think

Vee Butler says...ARTSA students

..."I am majoring in ARTSA because I love the arts, plain and simple. I am interested in theatre, but I know the likelihood of finding a steady job in acting is slim. With a degree in ARTSA, I will have the knowledge of both theatre and the business of theatre. In the ARTSA internship, students have the opportunity to use their talents in the arts in the service of the arts community. I completed my internship with the Erie Playhouse, working in event planning. At Behrend, I work on the Lion Entertainment Board, which brings entertainment to the college all year long. The LEB gives me the opportunity to put into practice the skills that I learn in the ARTSA program. This summer, I’m working side by side with the college’s Special Events Coordinator in the Office of Development and Alumni Relations."

Franchesca Fee says...

..."Arts Administration is the perfect major for me because I am able to merge the fields of business and arts. My paid creative services internship at the Erie Insurance Group led to my current position with the company, assisting with the research and planning for the Erie Insurance Heritage Center. Last summer, I was the travel coordinator at Chautauqua Institution, facilitating travel arrangements for the summer season's program participants."
