    I am an artist but I am a political science major. I would like to know if I would be granted the privilege to display my work. I have a portfolio at hand, and a few pieces I feel would be greatly appreciated by the student body.

    We are happy to take submissions from students of all majors and classifications. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to show your work this year because the jury has already met and selected works for the 2013 exhibit. The Student Art Exhibit is an annual event, though, so look for a call for artists next January. We post flyers and make an announcement on the library websites.
