Prospective students and all who are interested will have the opportunity to attend Arts and Humanities Day, where they can explore the various opportunities offered through the arts and humanities at Hope College on Friday, Feb. 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts.

The public is invited.  Admission is free.

The event will provide a chance for prospective students and their families, as well as current students who have not yet declared a major or desire to make themselves more marketable by adding a creative, analytical or communicative skill, to discover more about the college’s arts and humanities programs.  It is taking place in conjunction with the college’s Visit Day program, with the presentations designed to be experienced on a drop-in basis.

The student-run event will provide information about the departments of art and art history, dance, English, history, modern and classical languages, music, philosophy, religion and theatre.  It will also include information about pairing arts and humanities courses with other studies to enhance vocational discernment, accessible opportunities for art and humanities majors and minors post-graduation, and upperclassmen’s experiences that have been rewarding, as well as representatives from the college’s Career Development Center, who will discuss the services they offer.

A special feature of the day will incorporate performances from Hip Hop Anonymous, a cellist and a musical-theater student, as well as an artist who will be in the space painting and drawing. Prizes will be offered and light refreshments will be provided.

The Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts is located at 221 Columbia Ave., between Ninth and 10th streets.
