Our proximity—only 35 miles to Downtown Chicago—offers both students and faculty access to world-class academic and professional resources and experiences.
Highlights include two state-of-the-art theatres, light-drenched artist studios, a sculpture garden, a museum-quality campus art collection, two galleries featuring rotating works by local, national, and international artists, technology-rich classrooms and collaborative labs, and broadcasting and production studio facilities.
Part of the impetus behind the School of the Arts is to create an infrastructure that will unify our university’s strengths across disciplines and enable cross-disciplinary work.
