Where Campus Meets Community

Learn more about our events in Fine Art, Music, Film, Creative Writing, Theatre, and other disciplines. Discover how you can get involved with the arts in the Carrollton, Newnan, Serenbe, and Douglasville areas.

The School of the Arts is committed to building and maintaining a unified arts culture both on campus and in the surrounding communities.

SOTA harnesses the power of creativity in all its forms and shares it with the public. We work to enhance resources for the arts through meaningful partnerships with patrons and programs in the area, since we believe that a  thriving arts culture not only makes for more vibrant and tolerant campuses but also creates more desirable places in which to work and live.

SOTA hosts experts in their fields and brings in nationally recognized artists. We invite you to attend our regularly scheduled programs and special events.
