SUNY – Fredonia

October 16, 2014

Dear Westchester Community College Art Student,

If you are looking for a college with a professional program in the visual arts to continue your education, you may find Fredonia appropriate to your future educational and career goals. Our BA and BFA degree sequences within the Department of Visual Arts and New Media are designed to provide you with the appropriate experience, background, and skill sets you should expect from a comprehensive four-year program in the visual arts.

We believe our Visual Arts and New Media concentrations and majors, when viewed collectively, stand up to the most competitive schools in the region and state. Committed faculty, small class sizes and a student faculty ratio of approximately 10:1 ensure personal attention for the student dedicated to success.

The fact that Fredonia is a comprehensive liberal arts college means that we can offer students a wider range of possibilities than can be found at a conservatory. At Fredonia, if you desire to do so, you will have the opportunity to pursue a double major, or minor, in a field that either complements your career goals in the visual arts or that may satisfy a diversity of personal academic interests. Whatever your choice, you will be able to work closely with both your departmental advisor and area faculty to discuss professional options as you progress through our program.

At Fredonia we fully understand the complexities and considerations inherent in selecting a college to attend. Cost, quality, access to faculty, student support services, and so much more must be part of the decision making process. I invite you to explore Fredonia State University College at http://www.fredonia.edu/index.html become more familiar with our College of Visual and Performing Arts at http://www.fredonia.edu/cvpa/ and visit the Department of Visual Art and New Media at http://www.fredonia.edu/department/art/.

Please don’t hesitate to contact my office directly with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Robert Booth
SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor
College of Visual and Performing Arts
Chair, Visual Arts and New Media
