About NCCU Academics Research Admissions Campus Life Athletics Giving


Graduates of the Art Department are encouraged to stay in contact with their alma mater. Many alumni connected with the Art Department are willing to advise students on careers in art. They also volunteer to serve as mentors for currently enrolled art majors. Many of our alumni are working in institutions, museums, local and regional public and private schools, advertising agencies and newspapers. Our goal is for them to keep in touch with each other and the Art Department.
