Office of Student Life : Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience


Artistic and Creative Endeavors

Including arts and creative endeavors among the STEP categories affirms the importance of creativity within undergraduate life and for the university as a whole.  Exposure to the arts and opportunities for creative expression ought not to be limited to majors or those with professional aspirations; they are the vital current that sparks self-affirmation and energizes community. This category is designed to give STEP students the opportunity to cultivate and develop their creativity and artistic passions with guidance of OSU and Columbus artists and innovators.

For more information on possible artistic and creative endeavor opportunities, please see:
