Arts Village Learning Community
DANCE. ART. THEATRE. FILM. MUSIC. CREATIVE WRITING.
Open to students of any major, the Arts Village is a residential learning community that involves exploring all aspects of the arts and sharing views with one another and faculty of various disciplines. The community keeps the creative spirit alive and well on a daily basis with on-site classes specifically geared to art students, as well as collaborative projects, activities, and social events.
Residential Requirement | First- and second-year students must live in the Learning Community to be a member. Third- and fourth-year students serve in a leadership role and do not have to live in the community to be a member. Students living within the community must choose a roommate who is also an Arts Village member.
About the Community | Community members live in a diverse population in Kreischer Quadrangle along with other highly ambitious and motivated students who are members of other learning communities. Students work, live and hang out together to ease the transition to college life, while also helping each other through the wellness program.
Kreischer Quadrangle | The quadrangle consists of four residence halls: Ashley, Batchelder, Compton and Darrow and is the only hall that has on-site, full service dining. The hall features the Sundial Food Court is along with the Alumni Mall, a large courtyard area accompanied by outdoor basketball courts. The Rec Center, intramural fields and athletic complexes are nearby.
Each community has a set of residence hall rooms specifically designated for them. To sign up for one of these rooms, you must apply, and be accepted into the community, prior to April 25, 2018. To ensure your chance to live in the community, please complete the following steps:
|Step 1||Complete your housing application|
|Step 2||Apply here and login with your BGSU username and password|
|Step 3||Click on Add a New Community Enrollment Request and choose your desired community and academic year/term|
|Please Note||Students can apply only for two communities on their own. If you want to apply to more than two communities, please contact the additional communities you are interested in so they can apply for you. If you have applied for two and change your mind, go into the system and withdraw yourself from the one(s) you are no longer interested in. This will open up a space for you again.|
After you have submitted your request to join a community, you will receive an email from the community director approving your request. When it’s time for you to select your room in the next phase, you will be able to view and select rooms within the designated community space in the community’s residence hall. For example, if you choose to join the Chapman Learning Community, you will select a room in Kohl Hall.
