  1. Senior Art Show Opening

    May 2, 2014

    Graduation is almost here, but not before the 2014 Senior Art Show has its opening presentation. On Tuesday, April 29, the dance studio in the Student Center was transformed into an art gallery. Students each took several moments introducing themselves to the audience and then proceeded to describe the pieces that they had spent nearly an entire semester working on. The artists provided candid explanations for their works’ themes and creation process. They shared with us from where they had drawn their inspirations. Following their presentations there was time allotted for questions from the audience.

    I really enjoyed seeing the different mediums each student used and then hearing from each artist personally why they felt drawn to that type of representation (i.e. oil painting, charcoal, and acrylic paint). The seniors have worked hard all semester and have been preparing for this moment for years. The Senior Art Show is a great coming together of different styles, techniques, and artistic feelings. The students, all of whom are more than capable of producing amazing artwork, come from different parts of the country and each offer a unique viewpoint concerning the role of art in their lives.

    The presentations started on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. and actually, the display is still going on! That’s right; the exhibits are being showcased until May 8, which is  the same day as graduation! Ten seniors in total were featured in the presentation, and three exhibits featuring their amazing works are currently open. The three exhibits can be found in the Game Room, the Corridor Gallery, and the Fawson Alumni House. Hurry up and go see the fruits of your fellow Southern Virginia students’ labors!

Benedict and Momen spoke about their recent book “My Name Used to Be Muhammad: The True Story of a Muslim who Became a Christian.”

    Additionally, Worthington created several smaller videos featuring specific parts of the interview.

    November 22, 2013

    Members of the Communications team recently walked around campus and asked Southern Virginia students, faculty and staff what they are grateful for. As you can see, from the most important things to life’s simple pleasures, there are many reasons to give thanks this season and throughout the year.

    Happy Thanksgiving from the entire Southern Virginia family!

  5. General Conference Ad

    April 5, 2013

    You probably don’t need any more reasons to watch General Conference this weekend, but I will give you another one anyway: BYUtv will be showing a 30-second commercial about Southern Virginia University in between sessions. What I love about this ad is that it features some really great students, it has very fitting background music made by our very own Professor James Leva, and it ends with one of the most endearing high fives I’ve ever seen in advertising history.

    You can now be one of the first to see it. Be sure to share this video with your friends and family.
