The Arts Village stimulates creativity through attendance and engagement in the arts across campus and throughout the community. Located in Turlington Hall, the Arts Village unites students from various personal and academic backgrounds who have a passion for the arts and exposes them to theater, visual arts and crafts, music and dance. This is an opportunity for residents to develop their creativity, engage with the arts on campus and in the community, interact with NC State faculty and staff members, and serve as a creative resource for the campus community as a whole. Students fulfill four 1-credit classes through their attendance and involvement in the Arts Forum.
