As a student in the School of Design and the College of Visual and Performing Arts, you are part of a creative, innovative, and collaborative community within a university of endless possibilities.
Your fellow VPA students and faculty are visual and performing artists and communication scholars who present exhibitions, theatrical performances, concerts, recitals, presentations, and lectures. You will enrich your personal and professional life with classes from VPA and SU's other schools and colleges. You can listen to visiting speakers who come to campus for University Lectures or explore the galleries and exhibition spaces of the University's Coalition of Museum and Art Centers, among many other opportunities.
The Nancy Cantor Warehouse, the home of the School of Design, is located in downtown Syracuse, which affords easy access to local design firms and downtown attractions. The city of Syracuse offers numerous cultural attractions linked to the University by the Connective Corridor, a three-mile urban design project. Venues along the Corridor include the Everson Museum of Art, the Erie Canal Museum, Syracuse Technology Garden, and the Onondaga Historical Association Museum. The Connective Corridor also offers a free loop bus service between the University Hill and downtown Syracuse; stops include The Warehouse.
