For those who think the Governor’s School at Radford University is just a summer happening, think again. For the School for the Arts component, faculty members from the RU Department of Art are already engaged.

Professor Richard Bay and Assistant Professor Nicholas Umstead have spent two weekends in January adjudicating potential high school students for the summer 2014 session. This selection process first took place at Christopher Newport University and most recently at Shenandoah University.

The pair have see over 160 student portfolios and spent countless hours conversing with prospective students.

“The competition is intense for one of the 45 available seats in the visual arts program,” Bay says about the process.

RU is officially the Summer Residential Governor's School for Humanities and Visual and Performing Arts. This intensive program offers selected high school students the opportunity to live, study and be part of a peer group with similar interests and abilities from across Virginia.
