STUDENT LIFE “I wanted to be at a school where I was part of a team, part of a group of students who love the arts, who love experiencing the world together, versus the solitary nature of the artist.” — REBECCA HAMMER, Creative Writing and Literature

It’s Friday afternoon in late spring, and you’re sitting outside with a group of friends on the back porch of the Campus Café, brainstorming on a project for film class. Your group includes a screenwriter, two actors, a singer, a cinematography student, a painter, and a graphic designer, each of whom will have a key role in the project. You have to shout over the guitar chords of your roommate, who is jamming with her band on the Quad’s sound stage. Later this evening, you and your roommate plan to check out a museum opening and maybe a poetry reading before catching a punk band at Warehouse 21, one of the city’s collectives for young artists.

THE EVERYDAY EXCITEMENT OF LIFE Life at Santa Fe University is creative, vibrant, and collaborative. You’ll have the chance to work with other students on cross-discipline projects of all sorts. On the safe and walkable 60 acres of our campus, you’ll enjoy a close-knit environment where students across departments know each other and their teachers. The university’s recreational groups are entirely student-planned and student-run—if there’s something you want to experiment with, you can try it out here.

“It’s inspiring to be around these students. If you want a unique, rewarding college experience, this is the place.” — LAURA NUNNELLY, Senior Director of Student Life


Films shown at The Screen: Santa Feans and students watched rare films such as Crime After Crime, Circle of Stories, Journey from Zanskar, and Der Elvis.

Open mic nights: Student musicians, writers, and actors performed at open mics in the O’Shaughnessy Performance Space and on the Quad.

Other special events: The university hosted concerts by Contemporary Music students, panel discussions with independent filmmakers, a SITE Santa Fe Young Curators exhibition, AIGA reviews of graphic design portfolios, and a reading by renowned author Gary Shteyngart.

You don’t have to go far to find exciting events, such as those that took place on campus last year: Outdoor Vision Fest: Outdoor Vision Fest: By far the university’s most popular event; projected video, animations, and movie shorts are illuminated at night using Campus architecture as canvas.

Driscoll Fitness Center events: Activities included dodge ball, yoga, Pilates, soccer, indoor Ultimate Frisbee, tennis, Nia, Zumba, Bollywood dancing, Spinning, basketball, handball, and rock wall climbing.

Outdoor recreation programs: Students planned Plays performed on campus: Students and faculty members starred in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, The Wedding Singer, and Tooth of Crime (Second Dance).

SANTA FE: THE CITY DIFFERENT In Santa Fe, a cultural mecca nestled between two mountain ranges, there’s always something to do. You can raft nearby rapids, climb rock faces, explore the network of hiking and biking trails on the edge of town, or go snowboarding at the ski area a half-hour drive away. You can observe the feast-day dances at Native American pueblos, stroll among gallery openings on a spring evening, or catch a live local band while savoring bowls of posole and green chile stew.

Where Different Means More The oldest and highest capital city in the United States, Santa Fe is a safe and walkable city built almost entirely of adobe. Its distinctive look and rich colors, not to mention its perpetually sunny skies, have drawn painters and photographers here for more than a hundred years. Santa Fe hosts vibrant cultural events year-round—The Folk Art Market, the Spanish and Hispanic Markets, and Indian Market—as well as fine art, film, music, and new-media arts festivals. Don’t miss watching the 50-foot marionette Zozobra burn to ashes each fall, symbolically destroying gloom and trouble. Perhaps more than anything, Santa Fe is a city devoted to art and artists. Thousands of resident artists work in all media and genres, and many show their work in the city’s some-250 galleries. Hollywood and indie filmmakers shoot movies here. Art dealers consider Santa Fe the country’s third-largest art market, surpassed only by New York and Los Angeles. With all this and more in your backyard, you’ll see why Santa Fe became the first U.S. city to earn UNESCO’s Creative City designation. And why locals call it “The City Different.”

Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s programs are designed with an interdisciplinary curriculum and a liberal arts core. Our school is not a conservatory with a narrow focus: Rather, its broad perspective fosters academic and creative growth—and provides skills crucial for your career path. At the heart of a successful work of art are relationships—of form to content, idea to image, parts to whole, process to presentation. These relationships allow both a connection

for something to be passed on, and a gap­in which something new can occur. Within these relationships lies the space for dynamic expression. At Santa Fe University of Art and Design, we create that space for every student every day. Expect your peers to support and challenge you; seeing and discussing your work in relationship to theirs expands your ideas, clarifies your authentic voice, and creates community. Expect your relationship with faculty members to be a unique mentoring exchange. And experience the phenomenal art community of Santa Fe, which is at your fingertips.

We support this philosophically by recognizing each practice as both unique to the individual and connected to the world. We support this pedagogically through clearly organized and relevant coursework.

MOVING IMAGE ARTS (FILM/VIDEO) Our Moving Image Arts Department offers a comprehensive program that integrates film and digital production with critical studies and writing.

PERFORMING ARTS Although actors perform for an audience, the craft of acting, of becoming a different person, is deeply personal. It takes time and dedication to learn technique and to understand how to access those parts of yourself that you turn into someone else. Creating each part of a production is an art unto itself—designing and building functional and expressive sets, designing costumes that are faithful to the era and the character, devising the most effective lighting scheme, and composing evocative sound effects. Santa Fe University’s Performing Arts program introduces students to all facets of stage production. Thanks to this strong foundation, our theatre graduates are recognized and respected around the country for their knowledge and professionalism. And, unlike many conservatory programs, Santa Fe University of Art and Design has no waiting period for first-year students—all performing arts students audition for mainstage productions upon arrival in their freshman year. Students also perform in studio shows, recitals, workshops, music forums, and student films. National and international theatre professionals visit regularly as guest directors and actors, and they lead classes and special seminars.

INTERNSHIPS SELF-DESIGNED MAJORS At Santa Fe University of Art and Design, all students have the option of designing a major program that addresses their particular needs, interests, and goals. In order to create a self-designed program, students must meet university requirements and work with faculty members and an advisor to develop, finalize, and receive approval for a plan of study by the end of the first term of their junior year. Previous self-designed majors have included: Creative Writing Therapy, Performance for Social Change, Expressive Therapy, Interdisciplinary Media Arts, Political Art, and Game Programming.

Through the university’s robust internship program, you can apply the skills you learn in class within a real-world context. An internship is a great way for you to explore career possibilities, further develop your identity as a creative thinker, and begin to build your professional résumé. Depending on your area of study, you could pursue an internship with a film or theatre production, a local gallery or fine arts institution, a newspaper or magazine, or a graphic design firm. Some students choose to intern across disciplines. For example, one Performing Arts student landed a paid internship in costume design on a film production at Garson Studios. A Creative Writing and Literature student interned at the Georgia O’Keeffe museum. Most opportunities are in Santa Fe, but students within certain disciplines can apply to our New York Arts Program, and Performing Arts students can apply to our London Center Program. Department chairs and faculty members seek out opportunities through their connections in the art world; they coordinate the internships and make site visits during the semester. Students can also secure their own positions with the department chair’s approval. Internships may be paid or unpaid; for credit or not for credit; they might last from a few days on a movie set to a semester at a newspaper. Some are open to underclassmen, while others are reserved for upperclassmen.
