"What the student-run ventures allow our students to do is to have the experience of running a business with real world risks and rewards. It gives the students a window onto the industry in a very hands-on kind of way so when they walk in and apply for a job at a production company, or something alike, they know they have the skills, they're confident and they can demonstrate it." ~ Laura Ledford, Dean of the College of Fine Arts

Which Student Run Arts Business Do You See Yourself Working In?

"A student-run venture is basically Performance Learning at its peak. You are a part of the business that is centered on its students. With a lot of these student-run ventures, it's very much learning on the y, it's an adaptation, it's you seeing a problem and pivoting. Being a part of these ventures is an awesome opportunity, and it's great because we're put in a position to succeed." ~ Daniel Rivera, Millikin Student
