Arts Council

Arts Council is a great way to get involved with the arts here at Collins. Arts Council provides funding for student programs, maintains several studios that are available to all Collinsites, and produces several different events and publications.

To get involved with Arts Council, to receive funding for programs, or to meet the Arts Council coordinators, come to our meetings! They are typically every other Friday at 4:00 PM in the Coffeehouse. Check the Collins Calendar for the specific dates.

To get involved with the different studios, publications, and events, get in touch with our student coordinators! Also follow Arts Council on Instagram @collinsartscouncil.

Arts Council Chair: Allison Neal

Hello! My name is Allison Neal and I'm this year's Arts Council Chair. I'm a junior and third year Collins resident studying English and Media. When I'm not running meetings or planning arts programs I'm often writing, playing the ukulele, or hanging out in the Cheshire Cafe. I've loved being involved in Arts Council, first as an editor for the Collins Columns, now as its chair, because the council allows Collinsites to engage with local artists, share and develop their art with their peers, and use Collins resources to put on rad, creative programs of their own. I'm excited for the year to come! If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please feel free to email me at

Arts Council Vice Chair: Bethany Habegger

Hello fellow Collinsites! My name is Bethany Habegger and I am this years Arts Council Vice Chair! I am a sophomore majoring in Studio Art and minoring in Art 
History.  This is my second year of living in the wonderful Collins LLC.  When I am not studying and doing things for the council, I like to spend my time reading, listening to lots of music, and of course making art. Collins Arts Council is such a special group of unique and amazing people who just love all things creative and it is an honor to be the Vice Chair. If you have any interest in art, having a voice in the community, or just meeting some great people, then Arts Council is the place for you too! I am very excited for this year!
