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: Caroline Ferguson

Greetings from your friendly Arts Council Chair! My name is Caroline Ferguson; I'm a junior studying Anthropology, Spanish, and Liberal Arts Management through LAMP. Outside of organizing meetings and planning artsy-fartsy programs, I enjoy embroidery, coffee, and spouting off bee trivia. One of my favorite memories here is from my freshman year at Nutella Fest-- I've not crossed a 6kg bucket of chocolate hazelnut spread since. Have any questions, comments, or interesting ice-breakers? Email me at
