The Arts and Entertainment Technologies degree is officially open for enrollment this fall, and it’s already attracted more than 100 students to the new major in the College of Fine Arts.
Two students—Griffin Hanson and Clay Damron—quickly began building a community among students in the program through a new student group, the AET Student Committee. The group also serves as a student advisory board as the AET program develops future classes.
Hanson, who transferred into the program this fall, says it appealed to him on many levels: “AET gives a good way to get a fine arts education where you can pursue your style of art, but you can also focus on real life skills in tech and programming.”
The group has already attracted almost 70 members and meets every other Tuesday evening. So far this semester, they’ve hosted a bake sale and a game night.
Students interested in joining should reach out to Hanson or visit the group’s Facebook group. The students plan to use the Facebook page to connect students, share information and promote the work of their fellow students in the program.
