Students who are competing for Arts and Humanities Scholarships must share a sampling of their creative talents or expressions during an informal interview process with faculty and staff in the department they hope to enter as majors.
On Scholarship Day, students in Humanities—English, Communication, Liberal Studies, and Spanish—will need to bring sample work and be prepared for an interview with faculty. Music and Theatre students will have auditions. And Art and Graphic Design students are asked to bring a portfolio.
