Caine College of the Arts

The Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University is committed to preparing students like Emily Cottam to realize their full creative potential at artists and citizens. We cannot do this without the help of our alumni and friends, whose financial contributions provide scholarships to deserving students, attract exceptional faculty, and provide high quality arts experiences.

Our students and faculty are excelling; here are just two highlights:

  • Our interior design program continues to win national competitions. This year’s USU interior design students received the highest number of individual awards of any institution in the National Daltile Student Competition, and the Interior Design program itself was recognized with a grant from the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
  • At the BFA Acting Student Showcase in New York City this spring, senior BFA Acting major Max Falls was asked to audition for a Broadway musical and meet with national talent agents--great recognitions for his first New York audition. He will also be performing with the Utah Shakespeare Festival company in Cedar City, Utah, this summer.

I encourage you to join me in making a gift to the Caine College of the Arts to support our talented arts students. Your gift will help us attract and retain promising students and provide them with the tools they need to succeed.

Please make your gift now.

Favorite thing about USU

The care and guidance that I have received from the faculty has been invaluable; they have helped and encouraged me to take advantage of the many opportunities that are available to enrich my university education.

What Scholarships have done for me

The aid that I have received from scholarships has provided me with the ability to focus on my studies and take full advantage of what USU has to offer. I would not have had the chance to work with a number of performing ensembles, study across art disciplines, or even have the means apply to graduate schools without financial aid. I will be forever grateful to those who choose to help and invest in the dreams of students like me.
