Student Arts League

The Student Arts League was started in the Fall of 2008 when the University's art and art history professors noticed the lack of creative community for students of the arts. So these professors invited their students to meet and discuss the nature of our art community. From here on the students continued to meet and formed the Student Arts League, a student run initiative geared towards the promotion of the visual and performance arts as well as art history on W&L's campus.
