See what makes Southeast's River Campus unique

Unlike many universities that have art, dance, music and theatre in facilities across campus, the River Campus provides a unique opportunity for artists of all talents to spend time and work together on a daily basis and in the same space. International touring groups, guest speakers and Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts students, together on one campus provide unlimited opportunities to students and the community.
