Arts Society

Gifts that Reward Talent

The Arts Society at Radford University supports the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Its primary mission is to award scholarships to bright, talented and deserving students. The Arts Society is one of the university’s most powerful tools, providing students with enhancements and opportunities that help distinguish them as graduates in dance, theater, art, music, interior design and fashion.

Each membership in the Arts Society helps outstanding students realize their potential. In turn, their performances, exhibits and creative talent bring joy, entertainment and inspiration to the campus and the broader community.
