As a part of the cultural life of the university community, guest lecturers and artists are brought to the campus for programs and performances by the Lecture-Artist Committee. The Mount Vernon Concert Association offers season subscriptions to university personnel. Occasional trips to museums in Columbus and Cleveland are planned in conjunction with courses.
Students, faculty and invited artists display their works in the Schnormeier Art Gallery at the Buchwald Center. The Student Government Association sponsors concerts and other cultural events.
Music and ministry organizations provide opportunities for participation and enjoyment. The Choral Union, open to members of the University and local community, presents one or two major sacred choral works annually. University student musical groups include the Collegians Chorale, Flute Choir, Treble Singers Women’s Chorus, Goliards Chamber Ensemble, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band and Pep Band. Vocal ensembles represent the University and hold religious services off campus. Music faculty and students present recitals throughout the year.
The Communications and Music Departments present drama consistent with Christian wholesomeness. Performance related courses are offered each year including Acting Practicum and Music Stage Production.
