A residence hall-sponsored program is an activity developed and/or sponsored by a Resident Advisor or Hall Council.  They range from social events to opportunities to learn about campus resources, and personal or professional development.


Fulfill 4 semesters of 1-credit Arts Forum

During the first four semesters, all Arts Village participants enroll in ARTS FORUM, a one-credit-hour experiential course. The visual and performing arts programs of ARTS NC STATE—Center Stage, the Crafts Center, the Dance Program, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design, the Music Department and University Theatre—provide the foundation of this course through performances, workshops and exhibitions.
