Students exhibit, collaborate and work closely with professors and younger students -- even those of elementary school age -- in a vibrant department abounding with opportunities for interaction. Student groups like Arts Alive!, Break Thru Design and the Student Art Exhibition Committee are among the most active clubs on campus and are all recognized student organizations. Working as individual groups as well as collaborative, events by the groups attract people for across the campus and the community.
Break Thru Design
Break Thru Designs is the student-run graphic design club at SUNY Oswego. The goal of the club is to raise awareness of graphic design in the community. Although any student may join, graphic design students will especially benefit from this club. Members have the opportunity to become members of the AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts), a nationally recognized organizations for professional graphic designers. Students are encouraged to bring in class or personal projects to be critiqued and receive constructive feedback form club members.
