Welcome to FAME

An Introduction by the Dean, College of Fine Arts

Dean Chris MatthewsPeople. They are what make the Warren M. Angell College of Fine Arts great. Our students come from around the world and are incredibly talented; dedicated to developing their skills and to pursuing academic excellence for the honor of Christ. Our faculty members are nationally recognized scholars, gifted teachers, and accomplished performers who care deeply about each student. And our staff is committed to ensuring that the many and varied activities within our College run smoothly and to promoting the professional, welcoming environment that for generations has marked our classes, lessons, concerts and shows.

I’d like to introduce you to all of them and we’d all like to meet you, which is why we’re combining our efforts to host the annual Fine Arts Main Event (FAME) February 19-20, 2017. We’d be honored to have dinner with you, to let you hear from some of our amazing students and faculty, and to give you a taste of what our art, theatre, and music students do during their time on Bison Hill. We’d love for you and your family to experience our campus, to explore Shawnee, and to consider joining us in this grand journey. And, to help, we’d like to provide you the opportunity to demonstrate your skills and share your story with us, perhaps even earning financial aid that could provide a means for you to reach your academic and artistic goals. 

Please consider accepting our invitation and registering for FAME. I believe you’ll find the information very helpful, the process easy, and the experience rewarding. 

For the beauty of the earth,
Dr. Christopher Mathews, Dean
