Transfer Students event:

The faculty of the Art Department are looking forward to meeting you, and we would like to invite all of you to join us for our Transfer Student Welcome event on Thursday, September 15 from 4:00-5:00pm in Arbury 112. Light refreshments will be served. For those with children, this is a family friendly event.


At this event, you will have an opportunity to meet many of the Art Department faculty. A couple of recent transfer students will also be there to offer you some tips on a smooth transition to SVSU. This is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow transfer students and faculty and to ask any questions that you might have about the program, facilities, your class schedule, career goals, etc. For those who would like to do so, we also invite you to bring your portfolio or a selection of recent artwork (although this is not required).


We would also like to let you know that Lina Davis (, Alyssa Cozad  (, and Adam Sharnas (  (all current students at SVSU who transferred here from other colleges) will be serving as peer leaders to the group of incoming transfer students this year. You will hear from them periodically throughout the semester and they will be organizing a few events and meetings this semester to help you all get to know one another and get to know SVSU. Please feel free to email them if at any point you would like a little guidance from a transfer student who has “been there.” They would be happy to hear from you. You will also have a chance to meet them on the 15th.


We hope that you will be able to join us on the 15th.


We look forward to meeting you all soon,
