If you love art, then you will love the art exhibits in Green Hall. See paintings, drawings, and sculptures from students, faculty, and staff members. The most recent art exhibit, entitled “Strut Your Stuff” was one of the biggest student art exhibits of the year. Another recent art exhibit, entitled “From the Vault”, was highlighted by pieces owned by Chowan University that are valued at over $20,000. Clearly, art is a valuable and essential element to intellectual life at Chowan University.
Give to others.
Chowan University students are committed to serving those in need not just on the local and national level but internationally as well. Every year for Spring Break, the Campus Ministry team leads a mission trip to one of the poorest region of the United States. Here, students can reach out to people suffering from poverty. Most recently, students visited East St. Louis, one of the poorest zip codes in the United States. If you want to be a part of mission experiences, there are plenty of opportunities at Chowan University.
