WOTS: How are you involved with the arts at UNC?


Art and cultural venues play prominent roles not only on campus, but also throughout the Triangle. While some students enjoy getting their creative fix by attending on-campus performances, some undertake art-related minors and others participate in various clubs. Staff writer Grace Carney asked UNC students how they’re involved with the arts.
